NHL: Patrick Kane breaks Hall of Famer Bobby Hull’s consecutive games scoring record

Published

on

AMERICAN forward Patrick Kane increased his point streak to a franchise record 22 games as the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Winnipeg Jets 3-1.

Kane, the first overall pick in the 2007 NHL entry draft and three-time Stanley Cup winner, earned an assist on Artemi Panarin’s empty-net goal with 106 seconds to go in the third period to maintain his point streak.

The 27-year-old Kane surpassed the franchise record set by Hall of Fame left winger Bobby Hull, who recorded a point in 21 straight games during the 1971-72 regular season.

Kane has 237 career goals but is a long way from Hull’s franchise record of 610. With 16 goals in just 26 games, Kane is on pace to become the Blackhawks’ first 50-goal scorer since Jeremy Roenick scored 50 in 1992-93.

The remarkable comment was part of a story on The Athletic and comes from Dallas Stars CEO Jim Lites.

His ice hockey side sits fourth in its seven-team division after 38 games of the regular season; a position he and team owner Tom Gaglardi are not happy with.

Lites told The Athletic that Gaglardi texts him “WTF” five times a game.

Not all mascots are warm and fuzzy.

The Chicago Blackhawks released a statement after a video surfaced showing the team’s mascot, Tommy Hawk, body-slamming and punching a fan who provoked him in the concourse of the United Center one night earlier.

In the video, the man appears to try to attack the mascot, who then lifts the man into the air and slams him to the ground before landing several blows while other fans watch nearby.

Published

on

The new Flyers mascot had just destroyed the set of the “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

Within seconds of being unleashed, he headed straight for Questlove’s drum set and started tossing his sticks across the room. As Fallon and Ricky Gervais attempted to dance to Boyz II Men, the bizarre, orange, bearded, googly eyed creature cut in and started an all-out brawl with the two comedians.

Later, as he left 30 Rock in full costume and headed to his chartered helicopter — yes, a mascot for a hockey team had his own helicopter waiting for him — the all-seeing eyes of TMZ had caught wind of his location. They chased him down the street, screaming his name:

“Gritty! Gritty!”

Within three days of his creation, Gritty had become a sensation. But where did he come from? And what the hell is he?
