I must say it's getting difficult to find Avalanche links.

 

So let's start with some news from a long-time player who is retired, Vincent Damphouse. I hope that he is innocent.

Former NHL forward Vincent Damphousse — who played for the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Edmonton Oilers, the Montreal Canadiens and the San Jose Sharks — has been charged with six counts of assaulting his spouse.

The alleged incidents occurred between 2008 and just a few weeks ago.

Montreal police say Damphousse is also pressing assault charges against his spouse. His wife, 40, is expected to appear in court later this month.

 

Matt Duchene has made it into his the Haliburton News.

Haliburton's own Matt Duchene has been named to Team Canada's roster that will play for the 2011 IIHF World Championship in Slovakia.

 

I guess Zdeno Chara isn't quite in the clear in Montreal.

Police say the investigation is continuing into the Chara hit last March which sidelined Habs forward Max Pacioretty and sparked a national cry for tougher rules against hockey violence.

"We're still doing the investigation, but it's going to be long," said Sgt. Ian Lafreniere said Thursday.
