Ugly sweaters and Vegas rumblings

Bruce Bennett

Teams across the NHL paid tribute to military service last night. Some barns did a seriously good job at it, too.

Ugly Sweaters are a Holiday Party tradition. The NHL got in on the deal and wow...just wow. Just don't expect to buy an Avalanche version as it's the only team not represented.

The Penguins' Olli Maatta didn't let a little thing like surgery to remove a tumor from his thyroid gland keep him from the rink.

NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly admitted that Las Vegas has appeal as a new hockey town.

Gotta love great team Twitter feeds. Last night it was the Columbus Blue Jackets trolling ESPN.

Fascinating look into team chemistry via Red Army, a documentary about the 1980s Russian powerhouse hockey dynasty. Someone send a copy of this to the Avs, please.

Mike Nichols was paralyzed during a game for Monroe High School in New Jersey, but that hasn't stopped him from continuing to embody the hockey player mentality.

NCAA frowns upon bending the eligibility rules. The University of Alaska Fairbanks got caught, and the ice hockey department was not exempt from the smack down, and some think the NCAA went too far.
