Datsyuk Goes Gordie
The Wings only had two games last season with more than one fight (each had two fights) and none in 2008-09.
The NHL fans in Stockholm caught a pair of bouts. Frazer McLaren and Jared Boll haad a spririted scrap midway through the first period and Ryane Clowe and Mike Commodore fought halfway through the second.
Lappy set to retire
Laperriere told the Courier-Post on Wednesday that two doctors advised him to retire because of post-concussion symptoms.
The Flyers have not filed retirement papers with the NHL but are expected to offer Laperriere a position with the club.
“If this is it, I had a hell of a run,” Laperriere said. “I played a long time and played a lot of games and met a lot of nice people . . . It is what it is and I wouldn’t change anything.”
A great run, indeed. Hockey or not, may his symptoms disappear quickly.
