Happy Wednesday, gossip hounds. If you’re here, it likely means you either have a sense of unwavering loyalty to yours truly, or you too need a break from the real world to focus on the mundane, trivial fun of hockey gossip and drama.

So let’s get to it, shall we?

Leafs Lads (and Ladies, and Fur Babies)

Our boys in blue were all over Instagram this week cuddling their furry loved ones. First up, this adorable picture of Morgan Rielly and little Zoë, shared by Tessa Virtue on her IG stories:

It’s her favourite, and it might be ours too.

Then, we have our adorable backup goalie Jack Campbell, aka cat dad extraordinaire:

Love those furry friend pics!

Finally, quick shout out to the newest Leaf goalie, Aaron Dell, and his fiancee Nicolette, who recently made the move to Toronto. Nicole has been documenting it on IG stories, and if you don’t yet follow her, check her out @heyniclovin to get some inside scoop on how they’re making Toronto home and surviving the two week quarantine. She has some very complimentary words for the Leafs organization and how helpful they’ve been!

And Now, Babies.

Or rather, one baby! Congratulations to Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price and his wife Angela on the birth of their third child, and first son, Lincoln. Look at that tiny little face!

Odds and Ends (and Instagram, some more)

So, Dallas did this:

Reception has been….mixed. Personally, reminds me of Laser Tag. Thoughts?


Sure, why not. I guess yet another team is gonna try their hand at Alex Galchenyuk.

Meanwhile, two NHL players took to IG to share some thoughts this week. You can take a peek here:

An Important Final Thought

This weekly column is meant to be a lighthearted look at some of the off-ice happenings that have to do with the NHL and its players. Occasionally, something comes up that might seem like it fits into our little corner of gossip/drama, but is in actuality far more serious, and sometimes egregious, to be relegated to a little snarky heading here. That is the case with the current situation surrounding Arizona Coyotes draft pick, Mitchell Miller and the horrific bullying and violence he perpetrated against Isaiah Meyer-Crothers. This story deserves, and will receive, its own post in the coming days.


That’s all for now, folks. Don’t forget to check us out on Twitter. See you next week!
