Tuesday’s Hockey News

It’s Tuesday and that means it’s time yet again to take a look at the top stories around the hockey world.

Portland Beavers – Have had a wrongful termination lawsuit filed against them in Oregon State Supreme Court. On September 9th they fired their long time mascot Bucky the Beaver for an alleged improper relationship with a female intern. Bucky is suing on the grounds that he was only fired because the team’s owner objects to inter-species relations and that there are no laws against Beaver-Human relations. The Beavers could not be reached for comment.

Dallas Stars – Announced plans to being filming an MTV reality show starring Brett Hull and Sean Avery.

Billington Buffalo – Their mascot, which is a live buffalo, was murdered last Sunday. The lead suspects in the investigation are a bunch of 1840s re-enactment people from the local historical village. Authorities think the re-enacters are drug addicts who have actually come to believe they are from the past. They may be armed with spears and are considered mildly dangerous.

Vancouver Canucks – Announced that they have named goaltender Roberto Luongo captain. And believe it or not, this is actually true.
