Shaved Ice – July 20

MiHockey’s Stefan Kubus here with you on this rather mild Friday.

Quick hits

A giant Steve Hanson (yes, the character from Slap Shot) sheep was stolen from a Rochester art gallery back on May 25, and was finally recovered by police after about a month. You’ll have to see this one to believe it.

Want a new helmet without paying a penny for it? You can win one of five, brand-new Warrior Krown 360 helmets from MiHockey by entering right here!

Perani’s annual sale kicked off yesterday and is going on through Sunday, July 29, so now’s the perfect time to get that new piece of equipment you’ve been meaning to buy.

MiHockey wants to wish Detroit Red Wings all-star forward Pavel Datsyuk a happy 34th birthday today. In terms of the Red Wings’ future, though, it’s somewhat scary to see Datsyuk already at age 34.

Highlight reel

To honor the Red Wings’ Russian dynamo, enjoy some of his best Datsyukian dekes and dazzling goals.

Outside the Mitten

Reportedly joining the Toronto Maple Leafs roster for the Winter Classic alumni games against the Detroit Red Wings are two fan favorites in the T.O. in longtime captain Mats Sundin, and enforcer Tie Domi. How about a Kocur/Domi scrap for old time’s sake?

St. Louis Blues forward and restricted free agent T.J. Oshie has re-signed for five years at around $4.175/year.

Courtesy of The Smithsonian, winter may be too warm for there to be an outdoor rink in Washington D.C., but who says people need to skate on ice? Check out a video on one of the more unique uses of recycled plastic.

Next up

Enjoy the weekend, and hopefully the sales, too, if you plan on heading out to the Perani’s sale!
