Monday Caps Clips: AO, Cover Boy

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Alex Ovechkin is on the cover of this week's Hockey News, which you can preview here, but do yourself a favor and pick up a hard copy of it - it's worth it.
  • Quintin Laing on his return to the lineup. [Washington Times]
  • Don Cherry defends himself against claims that he encourages violence, then proceeds to excuse David Koci's hit on Mike Green without missing a beat. [Puck Daddy]
  • A little AO cheesecake... for the ladies. [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • Hershey heads into the Christmas break with the best winning percentage in the AHL. [John Walton Hockey]
  • Stefan Della Rovere will be one of five rotating alternate captains for Team Canada's WJC squad... [NHL.com]
  • ... Mostly because he's not afraid to mix it up, as last night's box score shows (note also Marcus Johansson on the score sheet). [Hockey Canada]
  • In case you missed it over the weekend, The Copper & Blue of all places had a couple of nice Peter Bondra stories to tell. [C&B, C&B]
  • Glen Hanlon is back in the NHL, hired by the Canucks as a "goaltender scout." Congrats. [NHL.comVancouver Sun]
  • Finally, happy 31st birthday to Petr Sykora (yeah, that one).
