When Wudrick was honoured with Hockey Now’s Minor Hockey Player of the Year award in 2005, it appeared the Abbotsford, B.C. forward was on the fast-track toward a distinguished hockey career.

From NHL on Fox: Trade market should heat up sooner

A trade freeze will be implemented from Feb. 13-28, leaving only three days following the…

From The Calgary Sun: Canada a crunchin’ bunch

Team Canada has plenty of tournament time to prove they can light the lamp. Last night’s exhibition tilt against Team Finland at the Saddledome was all about sending a message with their shoulders — and maybe the occasional elbow, too.
