• We'll have more in this later, but Alex Ovechkin officially announced he's joined Bauer Hockey and that Bauer will donate 108 sets of equipment to the Kettler Capitals Iceplex and Potomac Valley Amateur Hockey Association, as well as 108 sets to Dynamo Hockey School in Moscow.

[Philly.com]

• Torts vs. Brooksie parody. What's not to love? [NYR Blog]

• Nice work by the New York Rangers, piling onto a bus to visit firehouses around New York to honor the victims of 9/11. [NHL.com]

• "Ottawa 67's centre Ryan Martindale might end up being this season's Craig Cunningham — the prospect whose skills are beyond major junior hockey, but might end up playing an overage season since his NHL organization could run out of contracts." [Buzzing The Net]

• Marty Turco is still looking for work. As a goalie. [ESPN Chicago]

• Finally, it was Chicago Blackhawks Day at Wrigley Field. To commemorate the occasion, no one paid attention to the game until Chicago accomplished something of significance, and then everyone in attendance claimed they had been watching the entire time.
