CTV is looking at superstitions in hockey.

Patrick Roy

Goalies are known to be very superstitious and Roy was no exception.

Roy, who played for the Montreal Canadiens and the Colorado Avalanche, had a number of superstitions, including having conversations with goal posts (we're not joking).

He was quoted as saying: "They are my friends."

The Edmonton Journal is making a case for Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

The possible first overall pick -the Oilers are deciding between Nugent-Hopkins and Swedish defenceman Adam Larsson -could probably put on another 20 pounds because he's six-foot-one but, if teams are leery because he's only 164 pounds now, they shouldn't be. Skill trumps size in Hitchcock's mind. Anybody seen Martin St. Louis lately? Tyler Ennis? Nathan Gerbe? Or Brian Gionta?
