Halfman of the Day – Nicklas Lidstrom

16 12 2010

For the first time in Nicklas Lidstrom’s 19 year career, he recorded a hat trick against the St. Louis Blues.  Lidstrom had recorded 19 games of having two goals before recording the illustrious hat trick goal last night.  It seems only fitting that we give our Halfman of the day to him.

Today’s halfdog award nominee-Keith Ballard

1 12 2009

Today’s halfdog award nominee is Keith Ballard of the Florida Panthers.  After the Panthers gave up a goal to the Atlanta Thrashers, Ballard was frustrated and went to hit the goal post with his stick.  Unfortunately his stick hit his own goalie.  Panters goalie Tomas Vokoun was lucky enough to take that hit from Ballard, was bleeding from ear.  Don’t worry Ballard you only sent your own goalie to the hospital for a bit of rage, good trade off.

Today’s halfman nominee is Jeff Halpern.  Last night Halpern took a puck from his own teammate to the face, then came back and helped the Lightning get a win against the Minnesota Wild in a shootout.  Halpern bled all over the ice but like all hockey players was just fine later.  Any hockey player, and Halpern specifically is tough guy, and Halpern is today’s nominee for the halfman.
