But now onto some NHL news…

  • Some sad news to report, as Shawn Burr, a member of the Detroit Red Wings, Tampa Bay Lightning, and San Jose Sharks, passed away yesterday at the age of 47, after a fall in his home lead to brain trauma. Burr was under his second battle with leukemia, after it reappeared shortly after he successfully completed chemotherapy. Burr was a fan favorite in Detroit known for his hard style play, and giving back to the community as well. It’s a sad day in Detroit, and we wish the family of Shawn Burr our condolences.
  • The NHL finalized the sale of the Phoenix Coyotes, after the board of governors accepted the sale, meaning, yes, they’re staying in Glendale. We all knew that the NHL BOG were going to approve it, this just kinda seals what we already knew was going to happen.
