An update on Sandis Ozolinsh. Seriously though, they couldn't check the proper spelling of his name?!

"I know that there are three or four clubs in Russia that are ready to pay him millions."

Ozolins has linked with a move to Russian team Metallurg Magnitogorsk for reported three million dollars a year.

"That's what a great Latvian ice hockey player is, having such a price at 40 years old [he will turn 40 on August 3]," Ulmanis said.

Steve Downie and Daniel Winnik will both be playing Ping Pong for charity! Oh, Wolski will be there too.

Besides Moore, Steven Stamkos, Vincent Lecavalier, Eric Lindros, Jason Spezza, Brett Connolly, Logan Couture, Steve Downie, Cody Hodgson, Zenon Konopka, Teddy Purcell, Joe Reekie, Mathieu Schneider, Ryan Shannon, Daniel Winnik, Rob Zamuner, Mike Weaver, Wojtek Wolski and Stephane Veilleux are scheduled to participate in this event.

It's a bit older, but the New York Times had a fantastic video series about Derek Boogaard.

Derek Boogaard fought his way to center ice as one of the N.H.L's most feared fighters. But the role exposed Boogaard to repeated head trauma, chronic pain and a deadly drug addiction.
