Hockeytube.net was able to catch up with NHL13 producer Sean Ramjagsingh on the eve of the launch of NHL 13. Here at the office, we’ve played the demo and loved the new version with its updated skating engine, plus the whole package looks sharp and plays better. The only catch is it may be a bit tougher to score in the game. We’ll be playing the game and giving our review this week. We also had the chance to ask a bunch of Rapid Fire questions and Sean was great with his answers. There may be a couple of hints as well on which players to grab for your dream team.
Our first freebie up for grabs is an autographed puck by Hockey Hall of Famer #19 Bryan Trottier. He holds the NHL record for points in a single period with 6 (4 goals, 2 assists) in the second period against the Rangers on Dec. 23, 1978. H…e also won 4 Stanley Cups. On the back of the puck former Detroit Captain and tough guy #8 Dennis Polonich! Only people who have liked our facebook page are eligible. Just leave a comment and we’ll put your name into the draw. The puck given away is ‘AS IS’.
By the Vernon 2014 RBC Bid Committee
Date: May 28, 2012
For Immediate Release
Hockey Canada has awarded the 2014 RBC Cup to Vernon. Dean McIntosh, Hockey Canada’s Director of Marketing Services and Special Events, chaired the selection committee that settled on Vernon as the host for the May 2014 tournament. He called Vernon Bid Committee Chair Mike Lane early Saturday morning from Hockey Canada’s Annual General Meeting in Halifax.
Lane says, “I was so excited that I wanted to run up and down the street shouting that we won the bid, but we needed to keep it under our hats until Hockey Canada included the announcement in its AGM Notes on Sunday.” Lane advises that the bid is contingent upon signing a contract with Hockey Canada. He adds, “As soon as possible, we also plan to sign agreements with the Wesbild Centre and other local participants.”
A June 16 Kickoff Rally will feature a Hockey Canada representative, appearances by former Vernon Vipers and Vernon Lakers, and short speeches by Mayor Sawatzky and RDNO Chair Patrick Nicol. At the Rally, fans will learn details about ticket sales, volunteer opportunities, and sponsorship opportunities. Further details about that Rally will be provided by May 30.
Vernon last hosted a National Junior A championship back in 1990 at the Vernon Civic Arena. That was an amazing year when the Vernon Lakes shocked the New Westminster Royals 6-5 in overtime to win the Centennial Cup.
HockeyTube.net will have a video interview tomorrow!
Hockeytube.net is very excited to announce that we have received the ‘As Seen On’ designation from YouTube.com. Now when we feature videos and commentary on our site, it will also be available as an auto-generated feed from Youtube. You can subscribe to it by CLICKING HERE.
Another great feature is when you are searching hockey videos and you see the ‘As Seen On Hockeytube.net’ designation you know it’s a quality video worth watching because we only post the best and most interesting videos on the net!
If you’ve ever spent any time around a rink and a hockey team, you will learn very quickly that there’s a sub culture that exists, consisting of the team’s own slang, rules, and of course fashion. And one group that is working hard and has a great grasp of what hockey players LIKE to wear as well as fans of the game, it’s Danglers Apparel. We had the chance to chat with Nate Strah one of the brains behind the company whose slogan is “Hockey Apparel, made by players for players.”
HT – Nate, Tell us a bit about ‘Danglers Hockey’ and how it came into being?
NS – ‘Danglers Hockey’ was started by my friend and teammate Gary Astalos, his brother Kyle and I. We dreamt up the idea during juniors and went with it.
HT – What was your motivation for developing ‘hockey apparel’ and was there something missing in the market?
NS – Gary, Kyle and I felt that the current hockey lifestyle apparel market did not have consumer friendly priced product, so we developed competitively priced, quality fitting clothing for consumers.
HT – What are hockey players looking for in clothing? Why is it considered a lifestyle and not just some t-shirts and ball caps?
NS – Hockey players look for apparel that allows them to express their passion for the game while still maintaining a fresh image.
HT – You guys put together some creative videos. Why do videos, and what is the concept behind doing them?
NS – We like producing the videos because it allows us to portray stories that coincide with the hockey lifestyle and the message our apparel expresses.
The DIRTY Dozen
1. Which NHL Team would you like to see win the Stanley Cup in the future?
I would love to see the Colorado Avalanche win The Cup. However, Gary and Kyle grew up Red Wings fans…but we don’t let that affect our friendship.
2. What is your favourite item that you have created?
Definitely the soon-to-be released “The Hockey Life” tee. It has a great vintage appeal and is a tee you can wear to the rink or out rippin’ it up with the lineys on the town.
3. Puck bunny….term of endearment or bad nickname?
Depends on the bunny, some earn the respect by showing up to every game and actually knowing the rules and having a passion for the sport…others are more fond of the players than the game.
4. If you could get one hockey star to put on Danglers apparel who would it be?
Although I love the passion Jordin Tootoo brings to the rink everyday, I would have to say either Claude Giroux or Steven Stamkos. They are two of arguably the biggest danglers in the world right now.
5.What is one item of clothing every hockey player should have on the road?
A good hat, your flow is definitely affected from a long roady. A nice lid keeps it in check. Look Good, Feel Good, Play Even Better.
6. What will you never catch a hockey player wearing?
7. 50 goals or 50 assists?
8.Nosebleed seats or ice level behind the goalie?
Ice level, its where the action is at.
9.What do you love the most about the game?
What’s not to love? The game, the lifestyle and the brotherhood are unbelievable.
10.What hockey related sites do you like to visit?
HockeyTube.net…it’s my homepage. Definitely USCHO.com, CHL.ca and the Gary Robert’s twitter page for all the up-to-date training info.
11.What is your favourite hockey memory to date?
1st Fight, that feeling and adrenaline rush can never be replicated again.
12.Finally, has hockey ever broken your heart? When and why?
Every season you don’t win the Championship. That’s everyone’s goal and whether you get last or second that final minute is a bitter feeling.
Thanks, Nate! We want to personally thank all the guys at Danglers Apparel for their support of our site. For us being ‘rockpiles’ you guys have been great! We want to encourage all hockeytube.net viewers to check them out at www.danglershockey.com.
