Shaved Ice – August 21

MiHockey’s Michael Caples here with you on a Tuesday morning.

Quick hits

Kirk Maltby has joined Steve Yzerman, Vladimir Konstantinov and Kris Draper on the list of Red Wings alums for bobblehead nights at the Joe, per fan voting of the last few weeks.

Meanwhile, DRW fans can now buy preseason game tickets – here’s to hoping that those games are actually played (doesn’t seem likely at this point).

A jury has decided that Anaheim GM Bob Murray did not assault a Red Wings’ employee in the press box during the 2009 playoffs.

Highlight reel

Here’s some commentary you can work into your next drop-in game.

The Flyers have inked Scott Hartnell to a six-year contract extension. Does that mean he will finally be able to afford a haircut? I kid, I kid – that mop’s pretty solid.

Meanwhile, Mr. Carrie Underwood (and I mean that in a complimentary way) is staying in Nashville for two more seasons.

Nathan MacKinnon – tabbed by some as the next Sidney Crosby – helped Canada capture their fifth straight Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament victory.

You can always count on us for tweeting some photos while we’re out of the office. Yesterday,  I was at MSU’s pro camp, and posted this photo. More coverage of that is coming soon.

See you tomorrow, everybody.
