A well deserved, impressive haul of trophies from Carey Price last night.

NHL to announce opening of expansion process | Sportsnet.ca

How Jiri Hudler won the 2015 Lady Byng Trophy | Puck Daddy

What could have been: 2005 NHL re-draft - Sportsnet.ca
There were some interesting picks made in this re-draft of the 2005 NHL draft. The Wings picked Anton Strålman instead of Jakub Kindl at #19.

Let's Go Red Wings!
