A story on ex-Avs Philippe Dupuis.

"Rimouski had Sidney Crosby and Marc-André Pouliot, and we had Philippe Dupuis and Brent Aubin [in 2004-05]," Huskies head coach Andre Tourigny said. "Philippe was a brilliant scorer. He scored many clutch goals for — and against — us during those years."

And now Dupuis cannot seem to be able to find the net without the help of GPS.
The Toronto Maple Leafs have the top two goal-scorers in the National Hockey League. They are averaging 3.18 goals per game. Their last two wins were by 7-1 margins. But Dupuis has not yet joined the offence.

 

A story on another former Avalanche player, David Aebischer.

To find David Aebischer’s stats in the National Hockey League’s 2012 Guide and Record Book, you have to flip all the way to the back pages, to the listing ‘Retired NHL goaltender index.’

We can tell you Aebischer is definitely not retired. He was last seen skating this week in practice with the St. John’s IceCaps, but as for playing, well, it’s easy to see why some people might think Aebischer has hung up the goalie pads.

 

The OHL is taking hits to the head seriously with yet another suspension.

Mississauga St. Michael's Majors forward Joseph Cramarossa was given a 10-game suspension by the Ontario Hockey League on Thursday.

Cramarossa delivered a check to the head of Sudbury Wolves forward Andrey Kuchin during a game last Friday. Cramarossa was given a five-minute major penalty and game misconduct on the play.

 

Alberta premier is in a bit of hot water for saying that the she believed money was being "squandered" on the hockey arena.

Edmonton city council has committed more than $300 million toward a cost-shared rink with the Oilers, and may have to use another $100 million in provincial infrastructure money to cover a cost shortfall.
