Zamboni operator arrested for allegedly driving drunk at Minnesota rink


Today's hockey-related News of the Weird and Tragic: While Dornstreich was working with a referee, a parent ran over to say that the rink attendant was "weaving all over, slurring his words."

If you teach hitting from the beginning, by the time the kids turn 12, 13, 14, bodychecking isn’t something awkward or new and ‘Johnny 6-foot-2’ doesn’t have something to prove." Interesting piece by Rory Boylen at THN. I've wondered about this before, as I think players arrive as adolescents and adults with wildly different definitions of what a clean check is. But god knows it's a tough sell to make things more dangerous for the children -- even if that's just a misperception.
