Potential new NHL slogan: We’re on the ice 90 percent of the time

  • 2,323 NHL games cancelled since commissioner Gary Bettman took over his current position in 1993. (That’s 10 percent of the total games Bettman has presided over.) Bettman, who is considered an unpopular figure in the league for his role in labor disputes, could see a second season during his tenure go completely up in smoke. The NHL previously cancelled the 2004-2005 season, and inched towards canceling the current one Thursday. source

Artist Bard Edlund created this short, animated visualization of every goal and penalty minute racked up by each team in the 2012 NHL Playoffs. Despite what you may have thought, it appears that scoring goals may not be as important to the game of hockey as it would seem.

Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke marches in the city’s Pride parade on July 1 with his son Patrick and comedian Rick Mercer.
Burke’s son Brendan died in a car accident in February 2010. Two months before he died, he told the world he was gay. Burke had promised to march with him in the Pride parade that year, and he kept his promise.
The Post’s Bruce Arthur wrote about the first parade Burke marched in to honour his son. This piece was nominated for a National Newspaper Award.

Awesome and heartbreaking at the same time. What a great promise to keep.

L.A. Kings match city officials’ posted reward in baby slaying case

  • $50,000 offered by law enforcement officials in Los Angeles for information related to the murder of 1-year-old Angel Mauro Cortez-Nava
  • $50,000 was donated by the Los Angeles Kings (who are one game away from winning a Stanley Cup), bringing the total reward to $100,000 source

» What happened: Police believe Cortez was shot and killed after his father, Mauro Cortez, was mistaken to be a member of a rival gang. The mix-up is attributed to a purple T-shirt he wore which read, “I own a Honda. Be nice to me.” As for the donation, Timothy Leiweke, the president of AEG (the firm that owns the Kings) noted: “During such an exciting time such as this we can’t lose sight of the importance and responsibility we all share in keeping our community safe.”
