Here is a video of a robot "skating" and shooting a ball while on ice. This video is hosted on TheStar.com

An ex-Avalanche member just signed a deal.

Boston will have three more years of Johnny Rockets after this season.

The Bruins announced Tuesday night that Johnny Boychuk has agreed to a three-year contract extension. The team did not release the details, but according to TSN's Bob McKenzie, the deal is worth $3.36 million per season.

If you were in Barrie last night, you had a chance to see Ray Bourque play.

The crowd will be cheering ‘let’s go black and gold’ when Boston Bruins alumni take to the ice of the Barrie Molson Centre tonight.

Ray Bourque, Rick Middleton and Terry O’Reilly will be backed by an all-star team when they square off with the Ontario Law Enforcement Torch team for charity.

"It’s usually a very entertaining game," Middleton said.

"Sometimes it’s very competitive. It all depends on the opposition."

More about Rick Nash. For those asking, his cap hit is 7.8 million through the 2017- 2018 season.

"We’re open to all options to try to improve the team," Howson told the Columbus Dispatch on Tuesday, rattling the earth as he spoke. "As far as rumours go, we’re just not going to comment."

Columbus has made one post-season appearance since joining the league in the 2000-01 season, and it was ugly. The Detroit Red Wings outscored the Blue Jackets 18-7 during a sweep of their Western Conference quarter-final three years ago — and Nash factored in three of those seven Columbus goals.

Nash has represented Canada twice at the Olympics (in 2006, and again in 2010), and has become a fixture on the world championship circuit. Every spring. Because Columbus is never in the playoffs.

"I’m a Blue Jacket right now," he said, in the Dispatch. "I’ve played my whole career here and it’s a special place to me. So as of right now I’m a Blue Jacket."

Apparently there was almost a fight in Montreal.

A shouting match erupted at the Montreal Canadiens practice Tuesday, with an angry assistant coach tearing a strip off the team's highest paid player.

An argument between forward Scott Gomez and assistant coach Randy Ladouceur was so long and intense that some media observers thought it might turn into a fistfight.
