This Day In Hockey History (1/22)

Today we have a quick moment as we get ready for this afternoon’s hockey then the show of course.  We also have officially brought on Garrett Rees and Matt Juba from fantasyhockey.com to help out a little and give you a taste of what the old FH site was like.  Hell we may even make it better.  At any rate, I will let them introduce themselves formally.  Also, the usual Fantasy Hockey ONE will be done on the show tonight at 8pm ET on Blog Talk Radio’s Fantasy Sports Channel.  Live fantasy updates will take place throughout the afternoon and evening as always.

The moment for today has a touch of humor and sarcasm but nonetheless it is he debut of a goalie who would come and go faster than Haley’s Comet.  Here is that moment brought to you by the Boston Bruins.

This Day In Hockey History (12/2)

“This Day” occasionally features some of the more odd moments but this one is more quirky than outright odd.  Today we found one from just eight years ago that is quite impressive especially for an “Original Six” franchise.  Toronto would be proud as we pay tribute today to one Mats Sundin.  No, we did not agonize over this decision as it was a rather easy one.  Enjoy the video and moment.
