Which players led the NHL in jersey sales during the 2011-2012 NHL regular season? Follow along as we take a tour through some of the great champions and rising stars of the hockey world…

The NHL recently released its list of Top 10 Jersey Sellers at Shop.NHL.com for the 2011-2012 regular season, and it’s surprising to see of the guys who didn’t make the cut. Being the favorite for the Hart Trophy as league MVP wasn’t enough to get Evgeni Malkin on this list, the top goal-scorer Steven Stamkos came up short, nor was being captain of the defending Stanley Cup champs good enough for Zdeno Chara. We do, however, have a mix of the game’s top players both young and old…

#10 – Jaromir Jagr, Philadelphia Flyers

He won the Art Ross Trophy five times as the NHL’s leading scorer, and after a 15-year NHL career which included two Stanley Cup championships, it was assumed that Jagr was done with North American hockey when he joined the KHL for the 2008-2009 season. This year, however, he came back, joining the Philadelphia Flyers and putting together a very respectable 54-point campaign, turning 40 in mid-February. Aging superstar playing on a new, big-market team? That’s a surefire formula for jersey sales…

Does NFL Bounty Scandal justify NHL’s Injury-Disclosure Policy?

Don’t expect clarity any time soon on the NHL injury front.

METAIRIE, LA - AUGUST 05:  Head coach Sean Pay...

One of the more frustrating aspects for fans of the NHL, particularly at Stanley Cup playoff time, is the secrecy with which injuries are treated by most teams around the league. Even though a player may have been obviously slashed on the hand and suffers a likely bone break, all we’re told is that he suffered an “upper body injury”, or if his knee gets mangled by a low hit, it’s termed “lower body”. This season, the Detroit Red Wings even gave us a “middle body” injury to ponder.

Concussions are often the most-secretive of hurts, especially in the early days as a team tries to get an idea of whether a player will be out for just a few days, or a longer, indeterminate amount of time.

While many observers have criticized the policy introduced in 2008, or gone on end-runs around a team to determine a player’s injury status, the defense from the league’s standpoint has been one of player safety and fair play. If other teams know details of opponent’s injuries, they can take advantage of them.

In the wake of the NFL’s bounty scandal, that defense can now be considered lock-tight. [Read more…]
