A story on four men who are getting added to the Hockey Hall of Fame this year.

The Hockey Hall of Fame is set to open its doors to the class of 2011 on Monday night. Here's a capsule look at the careers of Ed Belfour, Doug Gilmour, Mark Howe and Joe Nieuwendyk

A story on Kyle Quincey, and what he was able to overcome since his injury last year.

Just over a year ago, that simplest of celebrations wouldn't have been possible. Quincey took a hit that dislocated his left shoulder so severely, it stretched a nerve running just under his armpit to the point where he lost sensation and range of motion.

Doctors were fearful Quincey might never regain feeling again.

For weeks, his shoulder basically dangled at his side as the nerve attempted to heal. For weeks, Quincey hoped for the best yet braced for the worst — his career just might be over.

Adrian Dater, at the Denver Post, has an article about hits in the NHL, and other things from around the league.

Through the first 199 games of the season, there were 8,523 hits officially credited to NHL players. Through the same number of games last season, there were 8,663 hits. So, OK, hitting is down — a whole 0.98 percent.
