A compilation of every goal Daniel Sedin scored during the 2010-11 regular season, former and current Jets are excited about the team’s upcoming season, the Senators head to the race track to support a young fan, and the Canadiens have a new radio play-by-play man.
VANCOUVER SUN: Daniel Wagner of the blog “Pass it to Bulis” has a video compilation of very every goal Canucks forward Daniel Sedin scored last season. Sedin netted 41 goals during the regular season.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Nice collection. A pity Daniel couldn’t have weave a bit of that regular season magic in the Cup Final against Boston…;)
WINNIPEG FREE PRESS: Gary Lawless reports former Jets like Dale Hawerchuk, Dave Ellet, Thomas Steen, Kris Kings and Dave Manson are as jazzed about the Jets upcoming season, the first season of NHL hockey in Winnipeg in fifteen years, as current Jet Bryan Little and prospect Mark Scheifele.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Unquestionably there’s lots of excitement, which is only going to build once training camps open in a couple of weeks.
OTTAWA SUN: Don Brennan reports several notable Senators, including GM Bryan Murray, coaches Paul MacLean and Dave Cameron, and players Bobby Butler, Matt Carkner, Stephane Da Costa, Nikita Filatov, Robin Lehner, David Rundblad and Mika Zibanejad will be attending a fundraiser for one of their young fans.
“A fundraiser called “Dine and Dash for Dominic” will see a number of the team’s players, coaches, executives, alumni and, yes, even old Spartacat himself at Rideau Carleton Raceway Friday at 6 p.m. to benefit Dominic Richmire, a six-year-old who suffers from a Diffused Pontine Glioma brain stem tumour, which affects numerous cranial nerves within his body.”
SPECTOR’S NOTE: The reason most of those players attending are the younger ones, who are in Ottawa earlier to attend the Senators rookie camp. Good to see them taking an active part in local charities.
MONTREAL GAZETTE: recently reported John Bartlett will be the club’s new English play-by-play man on The Team 990. Bartlett is the former play-by-play man for the Toronto Marlies.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Best of luck to Bartlett in his new job. An example of his work can be heard here.
