  • Happy 50th birthday to Robert Burakovsky, father of Andre, and an NHL’er in his own right with the Kings, back in the day. But that’s only half of the tale - I went to look for the obligatory “proud dad spends birthday eve in stands watching his son play” story and learned to my astonishment that “Burra” came out of retirement a couple of weeks ago to play for a division-3 team in Sweden and casually dropped a 3-6-9 bomb on Malmo. But it was more-or-less a one time thing and he’ll soon be back behind the bench, not sitting on it. [ (and again)]
  • Finally, the Rink staff humbly gives thanks for our readers, contributors, all the folks whose work we link to throughout the year, and the great gift of community and our shared passion. Best wishes to you and yours, and enjoy the blessings of this holiday.
