On Nicklas Lidstrom: The Pursuit of Perfection | DetroitHockey.net

What makes Lidstrom’s biography unique is what made Lidstrom himself unique: consistency. Every chapter carries the same thread forward, showing how Lidstrom worked like a machine at every level of his career.

Nicklas Lidstrom’s biography will be released next Tuesday, October 1. Clarke over at DetroitHockey.net posted his review. I’m sure it’s the perfect book.

Maple Leafs star Auston Matthews was charged with disorderly conduct, disruptive behaviour in Arizona | The Toronto Star

A friend of Matthews, unidentified, tried to intervene and asked Dothizee not to tell management. Dothizee said the incident was on camera, and would be reported.

“As the friend was speaking to Fayola, she said Auston began to walk away and after he walked some distance, Auston pulled his pants down, bent over and grabbed his butt cheeks.”

Not cool.
