The Columbus Cottonmouths of the Southern Professional Hockey League have signed Gold Medal winning goalie Shannon Szabados to a professional contract.
Quite frankly, she deserves a better league than the SPHL. But this is an awesome start and a sweet deal for the team that signed her.
making fun of your kid for enjoying the things they enjoy is the quickest way to make them feel so completely isolated from you that they are more comfortable talking to strangers on the internet than you about their problems
Players who weren’t competing at the Olympics had some time off to spend with friends and family. Canucks forward David Booth experienced a life-altering moment, when he proposed to his girlfriend, Ashley, while the two built a snowman.
"This snowman’s so lonely," Booth tells Ashley. "Who’s he gonna spend the rest of his life with? Should we build him another one? And then I got down on one knee and I was like, ‘I want to spend the rest of my life with you.’""
I am very disappointed with this episode of NHL Revealed. With being both a Blackhawks and Penguins fan I was looking forward to this episode. Considering all the other teams in past episodes that were in the stadium series had the footage practically spread over the entire episode. But no, hardly any clips of the teams coming to Solider Field, and family skates. If they had just shown the 2 teams that were in the stadium series and then the 2 teams in the heritage classic in the episode that would be fine. But no they showed the LA kings and once again the Islanders who have nothing to do with either event. Then to only show the Stadium series footage for only 15 minutes out of the entire episode is ridiculous. For the whole concept being “NHL revealed”, they didn’t really reveal anything I already hadn’t seen from the Blackhawks and Penguins videos.
