In Memoriam

ACCEPTING ADVERSITY

ON FEB. 8, BRAD Hornung succumbed to cancer at 52. Almost 35 years earlier, on March 1, 1987, he was paralyzed after colliding with the end boards while playing for the WHL’s Regina Pats. In the time between, Hornung made so much more of his life than many would have thought possible and served as a beacon of inspiration for many along the way. Jarrod Livingstone, who Hornung helped settle into the Wascana Rehabilitation Centre in Regina, Sask., said, “He was just the most gentle person” and someone who taught “very good life lessons” about how to accept adverse situations. He maintained a lighthearted disposition, saying, “I’ve accepted this is my life. Go with the flow.” The future for Hornung was wide open in 1987. He had 32 goals and 66 points…

BEHIND THE MASK

CONNOR HELLEBUYCK >WINNIPEG JETS FEW ACTIVE GOALTENDERS EMBRACE mask art like Hellebuyck. He’s known to swap in special-event masks for charity endeavors during the season, and he loves telling stories on his primary mask.

Summerside Western Capitals

CAPPING OFF HISTORY

IF A SCRIPTWRITER SAT DOWN and outlined the events that culminated at a raucous bandbox of a rink in Canada’s smallest province 25 years ago, in May 1997, they would probably put the pages in a desk drawer and move on in search of a more believable storyline. But when four visiting teams from various Canadian outposts descended on Summerside, P.E.I., home of the Summerside Western Capitals, little did they know that history awaited. That year’s Royal Bank Cup, an event symbolic of Canadian Jr. A hockey supremacy, was indeed proof that overwhelming belief can sometimes trump the unbelievable. In the winter of 1995-96, Gerard Gallant was home. A back injury sustained while with the Detroit Vipers of the old International League ended his playing career, which included parts of 11…

Beijing 2022 Men’s Wrap

STARS NOT IN ALIGNMENT

PERCHED IN HIS SEAT high in the stands at the National Indoor Stadium, a longtime observer of all things hockey shook his head as he watched another nobody-can-score men’s game on the ice below him. “There is a reason why these guys are not in the NHL today,” he said with resignation in his voice. Maybe not all the guys, but most of them. Men’s hockey was the only sport in the Chinese capital not to have the best-on-best compete for Olympic gold, and it showed. For better or worse, the 2022 Beijing Olympic Winter Games will be remembered for a lot of things that didn’t happen at a hockey arena. Though you could argue a Canada-U.S. final – or Canada-Russia, Russia-U.S., Sweden-Finland – could have hogged more attention than the actual championship…
