Friday Chum Bucket: Stalock, Sheppard return from career-threatening injuries

Harry How
  • Goaltender Alex Stalock and forward James Sheppard have fully recovered from knee injuries that at one point threatened their respective careers to the extent that both have been key to Worcester's AHL success this season. [CSN Bay Area]
  • With over 50% of the 2012-13 NHL schedule now canceled, David Pollak divulges a bit more about the Sharks' refund policy for locked-out season ticket holders. "According to season-ticket holder Aaron Turner, the team will refund the full amount paid. But if you want to retain seniority and the same seats for future use, you need to leave 25 percent in the account." [Working the Corners]
  • Matthew Coller scales AHL goaltenders' save percentages to that league's average, providing a look at how many goals each netminder has prevented above average per 1000 shots. Stalock has been perfectly average so far this season while Harri Sateri has been 3.6 goals below average. Of course it's worth noting Worcester has been one of the worst teams in the league on the penalty kill (sound familiar?) which could be having a detrimental effect on both goalies' numbers.

  • PPP needs your help in compiling the worst pieces of hockey-related journalism by the mainstream Canadian media in the past year. [Pension Plan Puppets]
  • The Atlantic magazine has solved the NHL lockout. It's always who you'd least expect. [Lighthouse Hockey]
  • If you thought people were pissed about the uneven point structure in the NHL before, they're going to be furious when loser points take on even greater meaning in a shortened season. [The Hockey News]
  • Finally, Katie Baker on the World Junior Championships is a fantastic read. [Grantland]
