Check out the 2014 Winter Classic jerseys


Once a venue is determined for a Winter Classic, the next question crops up: what will each team wear? Two “Original Six” franchises in the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs will compete in the 2014 Winter Classic, so it’s not surprising that both teams had plenty of designs to choose from.

(Which probably explains why it was easier for them to avoid what some might call an eye sore.)

The two teams’ designs were unveiled during Sunday’s big press conference, and it’s safe to assume that they’ll probably become hot-selling items for their respective fan bases.

Here’s the Detroit model:


Not to be outdone, this is what the Maple Leafs will wear:


Fantastic stuff, huh? (Locks wallet in a vault.)

Panthers’ Crouse is going back to junior

2015 NHL Draft - Round One

Lawson Crouse is going back to junior. The big 18-year-old winger confirmed it today on Twitter.

Crouse was drafted 11th overall in June by the Florida Panthers. Despite the club’s belief that Crouse could make “an immediate impact” on the roster, he finished the preseason with just two shots and one assist in three games.

Crouse will return to the OHL’s Kingston Frontenacs, with whom he’ll look to improve on his modest point totals from last season.

“I don’t think there’s any pressure on the kid,” coach Gerard Gallant said last week. “If he doesn’t make the team this year he goes back to junior … and will have a lot of success.”

Yes! Jagr’s bringing back the mullet

The greatest mullet in sports history is making a comeback.

According to the Miami Herald’s George Richards, Jaromir Jagr says he’s bringing back the party in the back.

“I have to,” Jagr, 43, said.

Jagr’s teammate with the Florida Panthers, goalie Roberto Luongo, appears to have been the lead lobbyist in all this.

Anyway, this is fantastic.
