Shrnutí prvního dne #NHLDraft ve vlákně 🧵👇

Výměny, podpisy, překvapivé výběry. Chaos!

Tak ať je to pohromadě.
Nejožehavější otázka - kdo bude 1⃣.

Nakonec vzali #GoHabsGo 🇸🇰Juraje Slafkovského.

To ovlivnilo i volbu Devils. Centrů mají teď dost a tak vzali obránce.

Jako 2⃣ šel další 🇸🇰 Šimon Nemec.

Doteď byl nejvýše draftovaný 🇸🇰 Marián Gáborik jako #3.

Jako 3⃣ šel 🇺🇸 Logan Cooley.
Jenže tím historická noc pro 🇸🇰Slovensko neskončila.

#GoHabsGo navíc vzali jako 2⃣6⃣ Filipa Mešára.

Poprvé v historii šli 3 Slováci v prvním kole.

🧵A #HeyNext viewer asked a question: What ever happened to the old #GoAvsGo mascot: Howler the Yeti?

And it sent me down a fantastic rabbit hole this afternoon.

Join me....
Howler was the Avs first mascot when the franchise moved to Denver from Quebec City. He's the reason the classic Avalanche sweaters have a foot patch on the shoulder.

Then all of a sudden... around the turn of the century... Howler disappeared...
A few vague articles about Howler over the years have mentioned an incident with a fan in 1999 in a game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

It took some digging but finally Nexis found me the 1999 AP article about the incident.

As a Brazilian hockey and soccer fan who likes soccer jerseys and loves to see jersey concepts for hockey I couldn't help but to wonder how they would look like and since I didn't find something like that I created one for each team! Image
Disclaimers: soccer jerseys usually have a sponsor and since we don't have that in NHL I simply used the helmet sponsors (for those cool guys that don't have one like Avs and Flyers I used the one from arena naming rights)

Teams are in abbreviation order!

Ok let's go!
1 - Anaheim Ducks
#FlyTogether @AnaheimDucks @DucksBRA

It's pretty simple but I think it looks fine, didn't want to mess something Image

OTD in 1959, after taking a shot from Andy Bathgate in the nose, Jacques Plante leaves the game & returns wearing a mask.

This is a (mega) thread to Plante & to the mask wearers who followed. Some great goalies/masks do not appear & some appear more than once.

Gerry Cheevers and his iconic mask. The first to have markings on it. #NHLBruins

I considered doing a thread just on Michel Dion's mask.

Como estamos a las puertas de la nueva temporada de la NHL y el verano se ha hecho muuuuuy largo, que mejor que arrancar motores comentando un poco a cada una de las 31 franquícias de la liga.

Va, va! Que ya empieza esto!


Con un año normal de lesiones y contando con un goalie del calibre de Gibson, los Ducks deberían volver a ser mucho mejor equipo. Dar minutos y roles importantes a jóvenes como Comtois, Terry y Steel, sería una excelente noticia para su futuro.

Atención a: Ondrej Kase

Tiene un historial de lesiones preocupante pero siempre es un jugador que destaca. Anaheim necesitará de su talento goleador para salir del pozo.

Hello, bandwagon Avalanche fans!

Since so many of you have hopped on board, we thought we'd give you a few notes on our squad...


We started out the season SUPER hot!

But then we went into a slump. A really bad slump. (We can admit it.) We found ourselves fighting for a spot in the playoffs.

Then we went 8-0-2 to secure our Wild Card spot, clinching in Game 81.

With that clinch, we made the playoffs for consecutive seasons for the first time since 2006.
