Red Wings prospect Matej Machovsky looking to earn job in Grand Rapids |
Matej "Macho Macho" Machovsky is probably a stopgap to backfill between Grand Rapids and Toledo for the organizational depth chart, but he seems a chill enough guy that he's decently easy to root for. Basically he's like the Tomas Nosek of goalies I suppose.

Goon: Last Of The Enforcers - Bringing the Hockey-Movie Genre Back - Anaheim Calling
Anaheim Calling's John Broadbent got to have a chat with Jay Baruchel about his Goon 2 movie.

The fun part here is that Baruchel is an honest-to-goodness fan of the game, which I think is important in trying to at least do it some service.
