Some small Landeskog news.

Eight players from Sweden's entry at the 2011 World Junior Championship are part of the 23-man group that will take the first steps in making the team or the 2012 tournament during a junior evaluation camp in Lake Placid, N.Y.

The camp, which runs Aug. 6-13, will feature exhibition games against prospects competing for WJC spots from the United States and Finland.

Among the returning players for Sweden from last year's fourth-place team is a pair of top-five picks in last month's Entry Draft -- left wing Gabriel Landeskog and defenseman Adam Larsson.

Yet another Bad Boy in hockey. On one hand, I love that players take cab rides home after a night at the bar, on the other hand... why are they so mean to them?

Former Calgary Flames forward Brett Sutter pleaded guilty to charges of ‘disorderly-conduct fighting’ in Scottsdale City Court on Monday after sucker-punching a 38-year-old cab driver outside a sports bar in the Arizona suburb on November 11.

 

Some Bobby Orr news... wish the picture showed the chicken.

Bobby Orr, hockey legend, skating through a pack of kindergartners while stickhandling – of all things – a rubber chicken.

And looking pretty good doing so.

"It’s easier than a puck," he said.

Orr was in Toronto on Tuesday as part of his work with the Chevrolet Safe and Fun Hockey program, which allows children ages 5 to 8 to skate with the former NHL great and learn about teamwork, fair play and safety.

Some other hockey news.

Jaroslav Jirik, the first Czech allowed to play in the NHL during the country's communist era, died Monday in a plane crash. He was 71.

Jirik died in the city of Brno, about 125 miles from Prague. His ultralight one-seater crashed shortly after takeoff from the Brno Medlanky airport and caught fire, police said.
