NHL concerned over impact of climate change

How many great hockey players had their passion for the sport sparked by cold winter afternoons spent playing pickup hockey on a frozen pond somewhere, skating and shooting and honing the skills they would need to go pro?

Habs’ Desharnais stickhandles way around Royal Montreal fundraiser

His first few late-morning drives curled gently right and landed with a sandy splash in a bunker that’s a nice poke from the tee on the Royal Montreal range.

MONTREAL — Nikita Scherbak took another step toward a National Hockey League career Monday when he agreed to a three-year, entry-level contract with the Canadiens. The Canadiens selected Scherbak in the first round (26th overall) of this year’s NHL draft and the deal represents a commitment by both sides.
