One Last Shot: The Story of the 2007 Towson University Roller Hockey Team

No ordinary Joe -- Sakic
"I’ve always been a pretty good stickhandler since I was a kid. Me, along with my brother, practiced a lot. When we weren’t doing anything at home, my dad would have us go downstairs and stickhandle. We had a nice smooth floor down there and we would play with the puck and stickhandle for a half-hour or so."

Philadelphia Flyers
April 10, 1997. 7:32 PM, EST. The CoreStates Center, capacity 19,500. The hometown Broad Street Bullies and their arch-rivals, the Broadway Blueshirts, are at center ice. Taking the draw is Wayne Gretzky, holder of virtually every NHL scoring record, and the 6’5’’ 240-pound behemoth known as “Eric The Dread.”

The Duck King: Paul Kariya
Some have called him the best young hockey player to come along in a decade. Others have even gone so far as to label him “Gretzky Junior,” or “The Next Great One.” But whether you subscribe to the belief that Paul Kariya will really be the National Hockey League’s next superstar, or simply believe he has the potential to be a good pro, expectations are high for the Vancouver native who turned 20.

Blast From the Past: Radek Bonk
A look back to the day when Radek Bonk was a star for the Las Vegas Thunder.

Interview: Martin Brodeur
Martin Brodeur is the quintessential chip-off-the-old block. His father, Denis Brodeur, was a first-rate professional goaltender who starred on several minor league teams, and also played for Canada’s 1972 bronze-medal Olympic club.

Hard Work and a Never-Give-Up Attitude Go a Long Way
An interview with Doug Gilmour.

Adam Foote
“Positional hockey is the key if you are going to be a good defenseman. You always need to be between the rushing forward and the goalie, and even though that sounds simplistic, a lot of guys, even at this level, don’t do it."

Profile: Bret Hedican
"Growing up, I always worked on my stride. I remember working on my edges all the time and doing power skating drills. By working on your edges, you never turn your back to the puck. You work on keeping the front of your body towards the play. You have to be agile and mobile on your skates. You need to have your head up, your shoulders square, and work on your edges."

Then & now: Brett and Bobby
With the possible exception of Gordie and Mark Howe, there has never been a greater father/son combo in the NHL than Bobby and Brett Hull. The Howes were very different types of players...

Daniel Alfredsson
“I always wanted to shoot and score,” Alfredsson says. “I always wanted to have the puck. A lot of guys told me they should put another puck on the ice when I was out there because I’d hold onto the puck too much.

Dale Hunter
"Dad always demanded that when I went to the rink I had to work hard because it took up a lot of time," said Hunter, who was the Nordiques’ second –round pick, 41st overall, in the talent–rich 1979 NHL Entry Draft.

Tips from Eric Daze
If you find yourself on the power play, Daze said moving the puck should be your No. 1 priority in order to create good scoring chances. “You have to move the puck quick and shoot on the net,” he said. “A good power play has great movement of the puck to create some space.”

Brian Holzinger
“My bread and butter and my asset in this game is my speed. When I’m using my skating abilities, I’m able to create not only scoring opportunities for myself but for my teammates as well."

Steven Finn
“In this game you have to keep your head up all the time if you want to survive. You’ve got to look when you don’t have the puck to see who’s on the ice and you have to look between shifts.”
