B.C. hockey player dies after ramming boards during rec. league game
VANCOUVER—A young British Columbia hockey player who died after slamming into the boards during a game in Metro Vancouver is being remembered by a teammate as a “gentle giant,” and “one of the best players out there.” Noah Trulsen, 22, was playing with the Bolts in an adult recreational league in Langley on Oct. 3 when team member Gerry Leiper said his friend may have caught an edge while rushing to the bench for a line change. Leiper said he saw Trulsen’s forehead hit the top of the boards and his face shield came down on the bridge of his nose, sending him sprawling to the ice. The referee and the team’s goalie rushed to help, administering multiple rounds of CPR after Trulsen lost consciousness, he said. “I can’t re…

Nothing Can Stop Elias Pettersson Right Now

The hottest teen in the NHL is currently playing for the Vancouver Canucks, and his name is Elias Pettersson. The 19-year-old undersized center out of Sweden is absolutely crushing it at the start of his rookie year in the NHL, and tonight against the Red Wings, he opened the scoring with a murderous slap shot past Jimmy Howard. In his 10th career NHL game, it was his 10th career goal.
Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful Holiday Season! May your 2019 be filled with joy......and cold rinks :) Peace and pucks from your HockeyCircles family

Canucks' finish their 10 game segment at impressive 8-1-1

When Elias Pettersson is passing like he has in October, his goal-scoring hardly matters. But linemate Brock Boeser’s goals always matter.
