A link provided by DDC starts things off. It's a story of the Eurolanche invasion.

Andy is a huge Avalanche fan since their moving to Denver in 1995. He co-operates with the Eurolanche since the Eurolanche Invasion II in 2009. He lives in Denver, Colorado. You could see him on the picture above with Gabriel Landeskog. The photo was taken during the Eurolanche Invasion IV in December 2011.

T.J. Galiardi is a hot topic.

Greetings from Canada! I spent the past week or so at Calgary Stampede in Alberta Canada and kept running into the same conversation over and over again. As soon as people found out I wrote for a website all about the Sharks they all wanted to tell me about how they knew TJ Galiardi. Well, he is from Calgary so I would assume some people know him there, but it seriously felt like everyone and their mom knew him. A couple of folks thought he still played for Colorado and others were under the impression he was still wrestling with San Jose in salary arbitration. (Red flags they may not know the hockey player as well as they claimed). Others however knew all about his re-signing with the Sharks and his apparent excitement at throwing that teal sweater back on come this fall. Whatever the case may be, Albertans are proud of TJ and his accomplishments in the hockey world. I just thought he looked cool drinking out of a boot with Taylor Hall on twitter in a cowboy outfit, but to each his own right?

Chuck Kobasew has been doing some good, and playing golf.

The guest list features multiple Stanley Cup Champions, an NHL team owner, Olympic Gold Medallists and a host of NHL stars, all gathered at the Harvest Golf Club for one of the biggest fundraisers in Kelowna this year.

The 2012 Sandman Harvest Celebrity Golf Classic returned this year after taking last year off. The event has annually drawn a who's who of the Okanagan along with some of the biggest names in the NHL.

The event has been a huge success through the years, raising over $1.2 million since its debut 16 years ago.
