Daily Cupcakes - January 25th, 2012.

UPDATE: Just thought ya'll would like to know that Tyson Barrie has been named to the AHL All Star team. Barrie has 5g and 21a in 43 games for the Monsters, good for first on the team. He's 5th in the league in scoring and tops for all rookies. - Cheryl



Ryan O`Byrne is doing good in his old community. Please follow the link for more details.

The Ryan O'Byrne Youth Sports Society is pleased to announce the creation of the Ryan O'Byrne Charity Camp(ROCC).

Alexander Ovechkin will not be participating in the NHL All-Star festivities.

Are you worried about facing questions about it in Ottawa?
"Again, I love the game, it’s a great event, I’d love to be there. But I’m suspended. I don’t want to be, like, a target. I feel I’m not deserving to be there right now. If I’m suspended, I have to be suspended, so that’s why I give up my roster (spot)."

Do you feel like you’re making a statement?
"No, actually. It’s not about that. It’s all about the suspension that I got — I don’t think I deserved to get a three-game suspension for the hit that I did … it’s not about that. I’d love to go there. I already buy my tickets, and my friends have to go there, too. But again, it’s not about what I want. I don’t deserve it right now. I got suspended. I’m suspended until Feb. 4, so I’m not going to play until that time."


I thought this was an interesting article about how violence in hockey is not anything new.

The provincial government of the day asked Bill McMurtry to investigate violence following a number of incidents, key among them a decision by one junior team to withdraw from a championship series out of fear. He was asked to examine the "causes" of such violence at the lower levels and concluded that the No. 1 cause was the influence of the NHL and the use of violence as a tactical instrument, most dramatically illustrated by the rising success of the "Broad Street Bullies" Philadelphia Flyers, who won the Stanley Cup in 1974 and 1975.
