Snoopy’s Senior Tournament shows love of hockey in greatest form

When a kid steps on the ice for his first hockey game, it marks the beginning of a lifelong pastime. Young hockey players grow up together as they try to live out their dreams of becoming the next Wayne Gretzky or Patrick Roy. For many that dream doesn’t come true, but it’s far from the […]

Utica goalie log jam will show Canucks philosophy in action

Goaltending controversies are nothing new to the Canucks. What is new is the idea of them happening in the farm system. The starting netminder jobs are completely set in Vancouver. Ryan Miller is entering the final year of his three-year deal, while Jacob Markstrom (as previously noted) has four more seasons with the Canucks ahead. […]

Doan’s legacy with Coyotes is one of ultimate team loyalty

There’s no player in the NHL quite like Shane Doan, and there’s a good chance we’ll never see one like him again. Doan will be entering his 21st season in 2016-17 on a one-year, $5 million contract with the only franchise he’s ever known, the Arizona Coyotes. Doan was drafted by the original Winnipeg Jets […]

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple weeks, you’ve probably heard about a global phenomenon called Pokémon Go.

Jacob Markstrom will be 30 years old by the time his brand new, 3-year contract extension worth $11 million with the Vancouver Canucks runs out after the 2019-20 season, and it’s a deal that makes all kinds of sense.

LITC Update: Reload

If the NHL season was a school year, the Stanley Cup Finals would be that one last field trip you take before summer vacation. After all those days of the hard crushing labour that is your work, the hierarchy gives you one fun memory before they boot you out the door until September. That would make […]

Knights, not Black Knights

The NHL officially announced on Wednesday that the league would be granting a new franchise to Las Vegas in time for the 2017-18 season, expanding the league to 31 teams.

2016 Stanley Cup Brackets: How’d I Do?

With the Stanley Cup Playoffs officially over, I thought now would be a great time to look at both of my busted brackets. This year, the NHL’s official bracket challenge allowed participants to create three brackets instead of just one. It’s a pretty good thing too, cause the one bracket only kind of screwed me […]

LITC Update: I’m Still Here

Hello internet users, As you’ve probably noticed, it’s been a while since I’ve made a video. I’m currently finishing my first year of college and so most of my time and attention has been put towards passing my courses. The LachTalksSharks videos never made it past the planning stage, mainly because I’d already saddled myself […]

LITC Update: This Is (Temporarily) Sharks Territory

Playoff time is almost here! The Stanley Cup Playoffs are upon us, and it looks like I’m going to have my work cut out for me this month. First of all, I’ve been writing hockey articles at The SRJC Oak Leaf student paper since January, where I’ve wrote on such topics as our SRJC Polar Bears capturing their […]
