Glen Hanlon Lands in Finland
Joining the ranks of others making the leap "across the pond" to play or coach, former Capital's bench boss Glen Hanlon is headed to coach in Finland. Check it out...Hockey Mom certainly wishes him well! I've also heard rumors that former Southeast rival Atlanta Thrasher's coach, Bob Hartley, may be headed to the KHL. Wonder what kind of crazy money they are offering him? I'm a fan of Bob's though - he runs a great hockey camp up in Pennsylvania, Hartley Hockey, and is super involved with the kids!
Speaking of coaches, Cap's head coach Bruce Boudreau has to be excited to see what kind of future talent he has in the wings during tomorrow's Rookie Game at Kettler Capitals Iceplex! Speaking of Gabby (Bruce's nickname, appropriately earned for his gift of gab), I'm sure he'd be incredibly honored to know that he now has an adorable namesake: HM and her hockey boys' 6-week old kitten, Gabby. I need to get her a Cap's collar so hopefully the NHL can produce some pet gear soon (along with a better selection of Capital's clothing for women).
The Rookie Game is sold out but the gang at On Frozen Blog will be blogging live to give all you puckheads not able to get away from the office (myself included) your pre-season hockey fix!
