Not really news. Lots of NHL'ers do MMA training in the off season.

Bieksa has been doing it for some time as well.

Gillis dis say he wants to get a lot more players doing this as he's really pleased with the results.

Sedins next?

Someone slip Bruce Buffer a few bills to record:
"Introducing first, FIGHTING out of the Blue corner, this man is an NHL hockey player, holding a professional record of 2 wins, 1 loss and 1 draw. He stands six feet, 3 inches tall, weighing in at 213 pounds. Fighting out of Windsor, Ontario, Canada: Zack (witty nickname here) Kassian"

Gotta love the concussive fists of Kassian!

Makes sense, though.

Rypien was boxing, I also highly doubt he was the first hockey player to train in combat sports.

MG also says he's pleased with the results and he may have other prospects start doing it.

Well I meant MMA, not all combat sports. And I am pretty sure I read somewhere that one off-season he was doing MMA conditioning....can't find a link though.

I was wondering where he got that move where he wrestled Eager down...from behind him.

Hordichuk trained with Chuck Liddel when he first signed with Vancouver.

"Zack" works just fine. If you get something too long. or overly complicated it won'y be long before pretty much everyone gets fed up with it and goes back to calling him Zack.

Also, I'm not a big fan of cute nick-names, except for when Kate Upton calls me "Snookums".

everyone becomes a hero when you play with the twins. line mates make a huge difference in what developes you to full potential. can't keep ripping Gillis on the trade anymore... there are reasons and things that we as a paying customer just will never understand.... Gillis im sure has a real good reason on why the trade happened and we have to stop comparing the two players... so different players. sorry had to vent.
