Via Puck Daddy, here’s the latest Tomas Jurco viral video.
Jurco’s AHL team, the Grand Rapids Griffins, said Jurco couldn’t do much of his usual tricks because, y’know, he was wrapped in wires.
Jurco has 10 goals and nine assists in 57 AHL games this season.

If Halifax wins both of their remaining games, they’ll tie the QMJHL record for wins in a season 58. Saint John is part of that record having won 58 in 2010-11. Sorel (1973-74) and Trois-Rivieres (1978-79) also own the record.
Willy Palov of The Chronicle Herald had a solid column on how the Sea Dogs and Mooseheads built their teams.
It’s interesting to note that Saint John had 34 regulation loses over the past three seasons combined and they have 42 this year. Rebuild city.
Former Sea Dog Danny Chiasson of the Summerside Western Capitals was named to the Maritime Junior Hockey League’s first all-star team this week.
The 20-year old finished the season tied for the league scoring lead with 88 points in 48 games. He had a league best 54 assists.
Chiasson had a goal and two assists in six games with Saint John last year.
Former Sea Dogs forward and current UPEI Panther Jordan Knox won the Dr. Randy Gregg Award earlier this week at the CIS Awards in Saskatoon. The award recognizes excellence in hockey, academics and community involvement.
Knox played two games with the Sea Dogs in 2007-08, going pointless.
Solid tweet from Rocky’s today.
