2 separate events. The Canada-Russia challenge is the WJHC summer camp. The Hilinka is an U-18 tournament.

If Canada wins Game 4 of the Challenge at the Metro Centre tonight in regulation, then there will be a 20 minute OT and possibly a SO to determine who wins the challenge. Now that's the part I don't like of all this. What is so wrong about calling it a draw and everyone goes home happy? It's not like this will give either team any advantage at the WJHC in December.

Canada's U-20 squad won the Canada-Russia Challenge series in OT, on a goal by Ryan Stroke, after winning in regulation 4-2. (Canada tied the series in Game #4 4-2 thereby necessitating OT to decide the series winner).


MFk Scheifele, Jonathan Huberdeau, and Lucas Lessio also led Canada, while Malcolm Subban tended in goal.

I think that's hilarious. I'm sure the Leaf haters will find a way to spin this into a sporting catastrophe but I think it's pretty funny.

Yes kids, downloading music is stealing and wrong.  But stealing physical property is okay if your a has-been athlete.

Decided to post this here to showcase article dealing with the "complexities of team building", the Victoriaville Tigres of the QMJHL, by sport scientist Denis Boucher, who writes about just what it takes to get these athletes mentally and physically prepared to work as a team...

...we ask these young hockey players to prepare themselves mentally, to concentrate, to better manage their stress and emotions and to play as a team, but these are only concepts; mere words. What do they really mean and how can we teach these players to achieve all of these goals when they may not always be as clear as we would like them to be?

....the strategies that result in a good athlete are well-known: test the athlete in his own environment, find his strengths and weaknesses and design a training program that will help him correct his weaknesses and improve on his strengths.

Once you have a good athlete from a physical standpoint, he doesn’t necessarily have the mental qualities that will make him a good hockey player. You now have to deal with what goes on in the brain of the athlete...We’re facing an athlete (driven by dynamic thinking processes) to whom you must teach specific skills: stress and emotion management, mental preparation, and concentration.

After that, you must take him has an individual and put him on a team where he has to deal with the personalities of other players. The goal is to bring all of them to work together and progress in the same direction. You want them to accept the fact that the team is more important than each individual. Do you really think this is easy to achieve? Do you really think it comes naturally? Do you really think this is accepted from the get-go by every hockey player on the team?

My challenge this season is to accompany the team through the following three important steps:

1. Make these young men better athletes.
2. Teach them the mental abilities they need to become good hockey players.
3. Bring them to play as a team.

The complexity of all this is enormous, but it’s a great and fascinating challenge.

Not bad for a 15 yr old prospect...

link

Connor McDavid, who doesn’t turn 16 until next month, is on the verge of agreeing to an endorsement deal with Reebok that is set to expire in 2018. And his part-time gig with the equipment manufacturer will provide him with just a little more money than most teenagers who flip burgers or stock grocery shelves when they’re not going to school.

McDavid’s deal will reportedly pay him $75,000 a year for each of his three junior seasons with the Erie Otters. The value of that deal goes up to $750,000 a year for each of his first three years in the NHL. The $750,000 is apparently contingent upon him playing in the NHL those seasons, but judging by his first half season in the Ontario League as an underage player, nothing short of a catastrophic injury would prevent that from happening.

Total value of the deal: $2.475 million. For a 15-year-old

And lets just hope he makes a lot more money with the Leafs.  ;)
