Can this family produce three NHL stars? The unlikely rise of Team Subban, photographed by Joanne Ratajczak
Hey followers! If you like hockey (which you should!) and you like POC (which you also should, more than hockey!), then you will LOVE this article. The Subbans are BAMFs, and the writer does a decent job of addressing the issues that they, especially PK, have faced being black and awesome in a predominantly white boy sport.
That reminds me…I’ve been meaning to do a Hockey Players of Color post one of these days.
Go forth and be awesome!

Gopher Women’s Hockey: Pay Attention To This
Brandt Lifts Gophers Past Beavers, 4-3
Sophomore Hannah Brandt (Vadnais Heights, Minn.) scored the game-winning goal with 7:19 remaining in the third period to break a 3-3 tie and give the No. 1 Minnesota women’s hockey team a 4-3 win and a series sweep over Bemidji State at the Sanford Center Saturday evening.
Brandt led the Gophers with three points on two goals and one assist, and junior Rachael Bona (Coon Rapids, Minn.) had one goal and one assist as the Gophers earned their NCAA-record 57th consecutive win.
Do you even understand what is happening? Do you?! *shakes head* Look, read this …
The last men’s team to finish unbeaten, and the last college team to do so before the 2012–13 Minnesota women, was the 1983–84 Bemidji State Beavers, who were then competing in Division II, a level of competition that no longer conducts a championship. Among schools in the top level of men’s ice hockey, the last unbeaten season was by the Cornell Big Red in 1969–70, who went 29–0–0 in the University Division (the predecessor to today’s Division I).
The 1955–56 Clarkson Golden Knights were undefeated (23–0–0), and Coach Bill Harrison won the NCAA Coach of the Year award, but Clarkson skipped the NCAA tournament because Clarkson had seniors with (4) years of college play which was against NCAA rules at the time.
The most consecutive professional ice hockey wins by a team is 21 by the Cardiff Devils (UK) in the Elite Ice Hockey League (UK) from 31 October 2010 to 15 January 2011. The Devils outscored opponents by a combined score of 111-38 during their perfect run.
The longest NHL Winning Streak Overall: 35 games, by 1979–80 Philadelphia Flyers (25 wins, 10 ties)
Jesus, you guys, this is the longest winning streak in hockey on any level, and it is happening in Minnesota.
I mean, what can you say … girls rule, boys drool.
I have yet to see a report on ESPN. Even last year when they were going for back to back championships the news media here in the city would only have little blurbs about them - which pissed a lot of people off because all of us knew what was going on. Lets just say the reports have gotten longer and they are no longer buried on the 13th page.
