HOCKEY NEWS:

  • Twelve games tonight. I hear one of them is in Winnipeg and shit. [NHL.com 12/10/13]
  • James Neal rammed his knee into the head of a guy who was laying face-first on the ice. He got . . . FIVE GAMES for that. That's it. The Department of Player Safety, ladies and gentlemen! [NHL.com]
  • There are a lot of things I agree with Ryan Lambert on, but crucifying Shawn Thornton is not one of them. He does so in this week's "What We Learned" piece. [Puck Daddy]
  • Pierre-Marc Bouchard was waived by the Islanders. THAT'LL FIX EVERYTHING! [Islanders]
  • Remember Adam Erne, the guy who injured Vladimir Sobotka in the preseason? Well, now he's concussed Jonathan Drouin, who is a PROSPECT IN THE SAME ORGANIZATION HE IS IN. This young guy has a bit to learn, it seems. [Y! / Buzzing The Net]
  • I read this headline as "Steve Mason's agent is higher than a fucking kite". [Puck Daddy]

OTHER SHIT:

  • If you're in-tune with pop music, you've probably heard the song "Royals" by young New Zealand sensation Lorde. The song was inspired by a photo she saw in an old edition of National Geographic featuring none other than Kansas City Royals legend George Brett surrounded by baseballs to autograph. That's pretty awesome. [Deadspin]
  • A 152-year-old shipwreck was found on Lake Huron recently. [Y! / Reuters]
