    Woke NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks To Read ‘Indigenous Land Statement’ Before Each Home Game

    By Hank Berrien - The Daily Wire




    On Sunday, the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks, marking the first day of Native American Heritage Month, announced that in deference to the Native American community, they will preface home games by reading an “Indigenous land acknowledgment.”

    The team said they would issue “a formal statement that recognizes the unique and enduring relationship that exists between Indigenous Peoples and their traditional territories,” The Hill reported.

    The Blackhawks, founded in 1926, were one of the six original teams in the NHL, (along with the Boston Bruins, Detroit Red Wings, Montreal Canadians, New York Rangers, and Toronto Maple Leafs), and have won six Stanley Cups.

    The team got its name from its original owner, Chicago coffee tycoon Frederic McLaughlin, who had been a commander with the 333rd Machine Gun Battalion of the 86thInfantry Division in World War I, which was nicknamed the “Blackhawk Division” after Black Hawk, a citizen of the Sauk nation. The team’s name was spelled in two words as the “Black Hawks” until 1986, when the team changed it to one word because of the spelling found in the original franchise documents.

    NBC News added that the team released a “Land Acknowledgment” on Sunday that read:

    The Chicago Blackhawks acknowledge that the team, its foundation, and the spaces we maintain, work and compete within, stand upon the traditional homelands of the Miami, Sauk, Fox, Ho-Chunk, Menominee, and the council of the Three Fires: the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Potawatomi Nations. We understand that this land holds immense significance for its original stewards, the Native Nations and the peoples of this region.

    We would also like to recognize that our team’s namesake, Sauk War Leader Black Hawk, serves as a continuous reminder of our responsibility to the Native American communities we live amongst and draw inspiration from.

    In October, a Blackhawks logo statue outside the United Center was defaced.

    “The Chicago Blackhawks announced earlier this year that it would not change its name despite the requests amid the protests over racial injustice. But it decided to ban fans from wearing headdresses when fans are allowed in-person again,” The Hill added.

    In July, the team stated that it would keep its name:

    The Chicago Blackhawks’ name and logo symbolizes an important and historic person, Black Hawk of Illinois’ Sac & Fox Nation, whose leadership and life has inspired generations of Native Americans, veterans and the public. We celebrate Black Hawk’s legacy by offering ongoing reverent examples of Native American culture, traditions and contributions, providing a platform for genuine dialogue with local and national Native American groups. As the team’s popularity grew over the past decade, so did that platform and our work with these important organizations.

    We recognize there is a fine line between respect and disrespect, and we commend other teams for their willingness to engage in that conversation. Moving forward, we are committed to raising the bar even higher to expand awareness of Black Hawk and the important contributions of all Native American people. We will continue to serve as stewards of our name and identity, and will do so with a commitment to evolve. Our endeavors in this area have been sincere and multi-faceted, and the path forward will draw on that experience to grow as an organization and expand our efforts.

    At least they're keeping the logo and name. Best logo in the entire NHL IMHO. Had a native buddy who always said the same too.

    Give it time, if the PC crowd got the Redskins to change their name, they will come for the Blackhawks eventually.

    I'm hopeful the Blackhawks stays long-term. Redskins is now a derogatory term, while the hawks are named after an actual tribal leader from the midwest... gives me a bit of hope you can't cancel Black Hawk, but I'm probably being too optimistic

    Zounds Wayne Gretzky Ultra-Rare Gem Mint 10 1979 Rookie Card Auctions for Record $1.29M

    MIKE CHIARI - Bleacher Report




    A rare Wayne Gretzky rookie card has set the record for the most expensive hockey card to ever be sold at auction.

    According to TMZ Sports, Heritage Auctions sold a Gem Mint 10 1979 O-Pee-Chee Gretzky rookie card for $1.29 million.

    Heritage Auctions noted that there are only two Gem Mint 10 O-Pee-Chee Gretzky rookie cards known to be in existence, primarily because O-Pee-Chee's card-cutting process resulted in many of the cards getting cut poorly.

    Aside from the rarity of a Gem Mint 10, the fact that Gretzky is unquestionably the greatest player in hockey history helps the card's value immensely.

    The Great One burst on to the scene in the NHL in 1979-80, racking up 51 goals and 86 assists for 137 points in his debut season in the league as a member of the Edmonton Oilers.

    Over the course of a 20-year NHL career with the Oilers, Los Angeles Kings, St. Louis Blues and New York Rangers, Gretzky set NHL career records across the board with 894 goals, 1,963 assists and 2,857 points.

    No. 99 is also a nine-time Hart Trophy winner as NHL MVP, 10-time Art Ross Trophy winner as the NHL's leading point-scorer, four-time Stanley Cup champion and two-time Conn Smythe Trophy winner as playoff MVP.

    Any and all Gretzky collectibles and memorabilia are highly sought-after to this day, but a Gem Mint 10 O-Pee-Chee rookie card may be the holy grail for collectors, which explains a price tag in excess of $1 million.

    LMAO so latest woke hockey drama here in Vancouver.

    Some douche professor Sean Carleton, a historian and assistant professor at the University of Manitoba wrote a long article claiming that the Canucks logo is offensive to our First Nations and 'cultural appropriation.'





    Thankfully some local reporters dug into it. Turns out the team created the logo years ago and did consult local bands, and it wasn't considered to be native art at all, they see it as just a cartoon. On top of that, one reporter canvased all the local chiefs and the Grand Chief of the largest band and could not find a single one who considered it in bad taste/offensive/inappropriate/appropriation. The Grand Chief said something like "nope, no way, absolutely not" on the record.

    These fucking liberal arts douche-bag profs grasping at straws as usual. Should think twice before telling First Nations, who generally love the Canucks as much or more than every other Vancouverite, how they feel.

    USA U.S. stuns Canada in final to capture gold in World Junior Championship

    Chris Peters - ESPN Staff Writer




    The United States upset heavily favored and undefeated Canada 2-0 in Edmonton, Alberta, on Tuesday to win the gold medal in the first world junior ice hockey championship played in a bubble.

    In a defensive special, Boston College goaltender and Florida Panthers prospect Spencer Knight stopped all 34 shots he faced to secure Team USA's first gold since 2017.

    Knight recorded his third shutout of the event, the most for an American goaltender in the tournament. Forward and Anaheim Ducks draft pick Trevor Zegras led the tournament in scoring with 18 points and was named most valuable player of the tournament. The 18 points were the second most by an American player in tournament history. Zegras also tied the record for most points by an American in his world junior career with 27 over the past two tournaments.



    The U.S. took the lead in the first period off a redirection at the front of the net from Los Angeles Kings prospect Alex Turcotte. That goal was the first 5-on-5 goal Canada had allowed in the World Junior Championship and the first time it had trailed at any point in the tournament.

    "That was by far the biggest goal I've ever scored in my life," said Turcotte, who was the No. 5 overall draft choice of Los Angeles in 2019 and was part of last year's U.S. squad that was eliminated in the quarterfinals.

    The U.S. overwhelmed Canada for stretches of the first period and held a 13-9 shots-on-goal advantage in addition to the 1-0 lead.

    Zegras extended the Americans' lead 32 seconds into the second period when he collected the puck and slipped it past Canadian goalie Devon Levi, who was leaning the wrong way.

    That goal gave Zegras a tie with former NHL player Jordan Schroeder for USA Hockey's all-time scoring lead at the World Junior Championship with his 27th point collected over the past two tournaments. He ranks fifth among players who have appeared in multiple World Junior Championships with 2.25 points per game, a list that is led by Hockey Hall of Famer Peter Forsberg.

    Zegras also picked up second place on the Americans' single-tournament scoring list, compiling 18 points to lead all players in the 2021 tournament. He moved past Jeremy Roenick and fell one shy of Doug Weight's record of 19, set in 1991. He was the only U.S. player to be named to the tournament all-star team, joining Canada's Levi, Dylan Cozens and Bowen Byram, Finland's Ville Heinola and Germany's Tim Stuetzle.

    Canada had outscored opponents 41-4 before Tuesday night's final in its bid to repeat as world junior champion.

    "This is the first team that really pushed back in the first period. We were not used to it and it took a little bit of time to get back at it. After we adjusted, we were really good, but we didn't score," Canada coach Andre Tourigny said.

    The U.S. found itself defending for much of the second half of the game. Canada outshot Team USA 25-8 over the final two periods, including a 15-1 shots-on-goal advantage in the final frame.

    "We had our looks, but Knight played great. We didn't get the bounces," said Cozens, who led Canada and finished second among all players with 16 points in the tournament.

    Knight, who was selected 13th overall by the Panthers in the 2019 NHL draft, made several big saves in his third and final trip to the World Junior Championship. After collecting shutouts in games against the Czech Republic and Sweden in the preliminary round, he became the only U.S. goalie to record three shutouts in a single tournament and the only American to collect three shutouts in his world junior career. He was named U.S. player of the game.

    In addition to records set by U.S. players, Team USA video coach Theresa Feaster became the first woman to serve as an assistant coach for a gold medal-winning team at the tournament. Feaster has been on head coach Nate Leaman's staff at Providence College for the past seven seasons, including the past four as coordinator of men's hockey operations, breaking down video and statistics for the coaching staff.

    "I told the guys after the game, I was going to be proud whether we won or lost this game," said Leaman, who won the NCAA men's hockey championship with Providence in 2015. "This was a group that cared about each other. They had good character. The team came together and they cared more about a team than anything individually."

    The win gave USA Hockey its fourth consecutive victory over Canada in a World Junior Championship final, having earned wins in 2004, 2010, 2017 and 2021. USA is 4-1 in gold-medal games against Canada, which owns 18 golds in the tournament's history.

    A little blast from history that was funny and amazing (from back when the Stanley Cup was still a challenge trophy):

    The Dawson City Nuggets (also known as the Klondikes) were an ice hockey team from Dawson City, Yukon, that challenged the reigning champion Ottawa Hockey Club, aka "the Silver Seven", in January 1905, for the Stanley Cup. The Dawson City team was composed of hockey players from the city, most of whom did not have any elite hockey experience. The Nuggets made the 4,000 mile (6,400 km) journey to Ottawa over several weeks, travelling by dog sled, bicycle, foot, train, and ship. They arrived in time to play the best-of-three game series. In the first game, Ottawa defeated Dawson City 9–2. In the second game, Ottawa defeated Dawson City 23–2 to win the series. The second game remains the most lopsided game in Stanley Cup playoff history. Ottawa's Frank McGee scored 14 goals alone in the second game, which is a record for a player in a Stanley Cup playoff game.

    Hockey is back!!! 115 straight days of hockey. Actually kind of excited for the all-Canadian division. It may get old, or the rivalries and fights may get crazy. Hard to predict yet, but the games today were great. Just happy to have it back while stuck at home.
