The St. Louis Blues rookie forward was caught picking his nose during Game 1 of the Western Conference Final against the San Jose Sharks on Sunday, and instead of shying away from it, he took it deeper by supplying an emoji guide for the act.
Nothing wrong with enjoying some boogies with the Blues.
Made aware of the red-hot Carl Hagelin, Nick Bonino, and Phil Kessel line, former WWE superstar and current ambassador Shawn Michaels - also known as 'The Heartbreak Kid' - gave his seal of approval to the Penguins Monday night:
Thanks to a Kessel goal in the first period of Game 2, and the fact he started paying attention to the HBK craze, Michaels found himself trending on Twitter in Pittsburgh and couldn't help but tune in for the second period.
The Tampa Bay Lightning forward's unlikely renaissance continued on Monday night in Pittsburgh, when he scored for the second time in two games of the Eastern Conference Final against the Penguins.
The goal was Drouin's third of the postseason, giving him 11 points in 12 games. He had 10 points in 21 games during the regular season.
Matt Murray, though, will be the first to admit that he's got to have Monday's goal:
The point is, Drouin is playing the best hockey of his life, and no one would have imagined this would be the case even a few months ago, when he requested a trade and was suspended after leaving the Lightning's minor-league team.
The 31-year-old will miss the game due to the flu, the club announced. He has a goal and two assists in 11 playoff games.
Callahan made news in Game 1 after he sent Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang into the boards from behind. He picked up a five-minute major penalty, but remained in the game and wasn't suspended.
"It's game to game," DeBoer said of Marleau's line assignment, according to Lou Korac of NHL.com. "Two Patrick Marleaus, one plays center, one on the third line ... I think we've been effective with three centers down the middle, Couture, Marleau, and (Joe) Thornton. We've also been very effective with him on the wing.
"I think two things come into play. Are you better as a team and is the individual better? That's the balance. I'm not here to make Patrick Marleau feel good. We're here to win games and we're going to put him wherever we feel we have to win games."
Vancouver, B.C. – Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning announced today that the club has signed forward Yan-Pavel Laplante to a three-year entry-level contract.
Laplante, 21, appeared in 63 regular season games for the Gatineau Olympiq...
Connor McDavid could soon become only the fourth teenage captain in NHL history.
In an interview with TSN's Darren Dreger, the 19-year-old was asked if he felt ready for the responsibility, having already been called the de facto leader of the Edmonton Oilers by Taylor Hall at the end of his rookie season.
"I think it’s a better question for my teammates," McDavid began. "I mean, I think if you have their respect and they’re behind you and they’re backing you in everything you do, then I think that makes that job very easy.
"But for me, I’m looking to have a good summer, come into training camp, and whether or not that happens, that’s a different story. But I think I want to come to camp and show everyone that I’m not some young 19-year-old anymore, and I’m ready to take a bigger role."
McDavid made an impact immediately upon hitting the NHL stage, recording 48 points in 45 games during his injury-shortened rookie campaign.
The NHL's motion to dismiss class action lawsuits filed by former players dealing with concussions has been denied by U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson, Darren Heitner of Forbes reports.
The league argued that the class action could be preempted by labor law, but this was not accepted by the court. The former players - diagnosed with neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy) - can now continue with their lawsuits.
After courts upheld a $1-billion plan to settle concussion lawsuits between the NFL and former players in April, Heitner suggests the NHL may have to begin considering a settlement option of their own.
