Aces Regular (2/16)



  1. Regina hosted the world juniors a few years ago. They have 2 quality rinks (U of R Cougars and Pats play/practice at) and a bunch of other rinks that could be practiced at all in the same building with a hospital a stones throw away.
  2. I have not, I just read the article. I am planning on watching it though just because it does hit close to home. I am amazed what he’s doing based on personal experiences as I have confidence issues stopping on my skates one way lol.
  3. I’d suggest looking into how the process is with a PCL reconstruction, I saw Dr. MacDonald in Winnipeg as there were no surgeons willing to do it in Saskatchewan that I found. He told me that due to the procedure I’d be out of work a minimum 12 months. He also told me the best option is just physiotherapy to strengthen all the muscles around the knee to compensate for the less stability. I doubt you’ve seen the brace McDavid is wearing. I have a picture of mine if you’d like to see it lol.
  4. Unfortunately for Hertl he tore the 2 major support ligaments. They support is side to side and forward/back motions. Surgeons told McDavid they can fix his which was a PCL tear but the risks outweigh the rewards. McDavids injury is far tamer and some would say insignificant in the professional standards. Source: I have a grade 3 PCL tear (same as McDavid) and doctors told me to suck it up cause it’s not needed.
  5. Beat me to it... As much as I dislike the Leafs, I hate seeing players get injured as it affects them in the long term, luckily for Reilly it’s only a fracture not requiring surgery.
  6. I know it’s irrelevant, but the odds of a team losing their best player (when Seattle joins) is 1/23,808... Math - 1/32 picked, 1/31 picked, 1/6 positions 1/4 players... if you add in players in the farm it gets more astronomical. P.S. Math might be wrong haven’t done statistics in a long time, but still the odds of it picking 1 specific player is rare.
  7. And due to these injuries my cousin got called up to possibly play tonight vs the Blues!
  8. I’ve been watching these waiver lists waiting for Dallas to waive Gardner... might have to be my next jersey I end up buying if he makes the NHL.
  9. Dallas Stars sign F Rhett Gardner 2 years https://www.discovermoosejaw.com/local-sports/mj-s-gardner-signs-with-nhl-s-stars
  10. Really weird thing to pick up on... but why are the Sedins the only name capitalized?
  11. That sucks! I actually live in Saskatchewan... It gets quite cold here during the winter so we have our outdoor rinks running from November->March usually.
  12. That's good to hear about people trying new things. Skating is such amazing exorcise! Keep it up and in no time you'll be one of those advanced skaters. Is it cold enough where you live to have an out door rink? If so you could always try that out for some cheap practice. You might even find a game going on and join in!
