Published

on

Summer hockey finally concluded on Saturday with the final of The Hlinka Gretzky Cup in the Czech Republic. Russia ended Canada’s two-year title reign with a 3-2 victory in the final led by Alexandr Pashin’s two goals and Yaroslav Askarov 35 save performance. Meanwhile, Kevin LaBanc believes his enhanced role with the team will help him become part of the long-term core. That and whole lot more as we take a look at the news from the world of hockey on Sunday, August 11.

Alexander Pashin scored two goals in the game including the game-winner in the second period as Russian goalie Yaroslav Askarov made 35 saves to lead Russia to a 3-2 victory over Canada 3-2  in the final of the 2019 Hlinka Gretzky Cup under-18 hockey tournament. (CBC)

Many people were puzzled when San Jose Sharks forward Kevin LaBanc signed a one-year contract on July 8, but there was a method to his madness. LaBanc took the short-term deal in order for the Sharks to sign one or two more players to contend for the Stanley Cup this year. (NHL.com)

The New York Islanders are on track to finally move to Belmont Park in the 2021-2022 season as the New York State Board approved the 1.3 billion arena project. (CBSSports)

Nick Foligno did not back his true feeling as he had some strong comments for those players who departed Columbus in the off-season believing you do not leave a good team in search of another. (TSN)
