John Walton @jwaltonhockey For one and all, no truth to Bourque being back. But it has been fun watching my dinner get cold as the calls, tweets and texts rolled in.

John Walton's Twitter Feed Rebutting a rumor that Chris Bourque (he must have a doppelganger!) was back in Hershey last night, with his tail between his legs... It took some doing, but I was finally able to locate his team's website and the recent stats; since Mr. Bourque played on Saturday in Switzerland, it was really highly unlikely he was actually in Hershey, but apparently someone who looks enough like him to pass was... ;-) HC Lugano's game results from 11/20 Chris Bourque at HC Lugano (player page)

Yoga and Pilates aid puck stoppers in the NHL

On the surface Yoga and Pilates hardly seem a good fit for the missing teeth, stitch-it-up and get me back in the game world of professional hockey. I mean what self-respecting player would be caught dead in Yoga pants? Would you believe one that once hunted bears with a bow and arrow? Or another was once named to People Magazine’s 100 Most Beautiful People list?

"Going inside the "Gordie Howe Hat Trick" Monday, 01.25.2010 / 6:36 PM / NHL Insider By John McGourty - NHL.com Staff Writer Gordie Howe retired from the NHL in 1980 as the all-time leading scorer with 801 goals and 1,850 points. He led many other statistical categories but one he surely didn't lead is the unofficial one that came to bear his name, "the Gordie Howe Hat Trick," which is a goal, an assist and a fight in the same game. NHL Insider article - interesting read on the history of the term (and Howe himself). Chimera is one of nine players this season to have a Gordie Howe Hat Trick.
