There's a bad boy in hockey. Allegedly, Scott Timmins drunkenly broke into someone's house and decided the couch looked comfy.

Scott Timmins, a forward from Hamilton, Ont., playing for the San Antonio Rampage in the American Hockey League, was arrested. He was charged with criminal trespass and was released on bail Monday.

The Oilers have announced they will not be tearing the team down to do a rebuild.

“I think sometimes you’ve seen us play to potential, as far as playing with energy throughout 60 minutes,” said Tambellini prior to the Oilers game against the Colorado Avalanche Tuesday. “At other times, with extended games, three games in four nights, you’ve seen some fatigue. I think everyone is dealing with the same issues.

“It’s a season where you just have to hang in there. We’re five points out a playoffs spot prior to (Tuesday’s) game. We’re in March and we only have 20-something games left and you have to be excited about that.”

CBC does an All-star weekend. Do you agree with their picks?!

What if, for the all-star weekend, the NHL organized a four-on-four tourney between eight teams: Canada, the Czech Republic, Finland, Russia, Slovakia, Sweden, the United States and a team made up of players from the rest of the world?

Each team would be allowed a roster of two goalies, four defencemen and six forwards. So, based on the first half of the 2013 NHL season -- and assuming everybody has 100 per cent health -- whom would you select to represent their country?

Maybe it's just me, but I feel it's sad that this is required.

Parents of New Brunswick’s youngest hockey players will be required to take a course on rinkside behaviour beginning in the fall.

Brian Whitehead, the general manager of Hockey New Brunswick, said the organization is planning to introduce the mandatory online course in September for any parent registering children from four to eight years of age.

Whitehead said Hockey New Brunswick’s intention is to prevent instances where parents exhibit aggressive behaviour in the stands.
