  • Kimmo Timonen sent to Blackhawks for draft picks

    And the Chicago Blackhawks appear to have gotten the defensive help they need. Wait, didn't they need a forward to replace the injured Patrick Kane? Yes, they do, but that's another story.

    Chicago started its trade deadline period by landing blueliner Kimmo Timonen from Philadelphia.

    In return, the Flyers got a second round draft pick in 2015 and a conditional draft pick in 2016. Timonen hasn’t played all year due to blood clots in his lower right leg and lungs.

    Good for Timonen, one of the NHL’s true good guys, to go to a contender. Good for the Flyers to get something back for a guy who may never be the same again because of this issue. Good for the Blackhawks to get a guy who hasn’t played a game all season?

    Timonen had been practicing with the Flyers since early February and appeared ready to return to game action.

  • Dr. Seuss jerseys headline Rapid City Rush book drive

    Bravo to the ECHL’s Rapid City Rush, for arguably the most creative jersey of the year. Better than 50 Shades of Grey from the Bakersfield Condors? Probably. The Batman v. Riddler jerseys from the Toledo Walleye and Evansville IceMen? Maybe not. But this is still cool.

    Check out the book drive Dr. Seuss unis to be worn Saturday, Feb. 28 above.

    The Rush is no stranger to interesting promotions – once celebrating a victory with the Harlem Shake and also a beer chugging contest at another time.
