Anaheim Clippings - 8/7/10

A Paul Kariya tribute-- seems relevant considering recent rumblings --from the YouTube channel of Ducks blogger Andy Elvstrand (AndyDucks).  It actually opens with some impressive highlights with the Blues, tracing his career back to only a couple of Anaheim highlights.

In case you were wondering if Kyle Palmieri might join Peter Holland in Guelph for a year, the Ducks have reportedly let the Storm know they plan to send the former Fighting Irishman to the AHL next year.

Guelph Storm have been told Anaheim Ducks plans to start prospect Kyle Palmieri in the #AHL. Guelph holds #OHL rights (per Guelph Mercury).via TweetDeck

 

Bobby Ryan, via his new-ish Twitter account, takes the ice with current (former?  heh heh) teammate Ryan Getzlaf and former Duck Dustin Penner.  

Great workout with Getz and Penner today. On the ice again as well!! Seasons getting close!via Echofon

 

Ducks Towels is taking suggestions for where to invade China.  The Great Wall comes to mind (get it?  invasions...China...Great Wall... '//), but were I in China with a Ducks Towel, I'd probably hop a flight to Hong Kong to drape one around the neck of the Bruce Lee statue.  

Now taking suggestions for Anaheim #Ducks Towel Invasions for Beijing, China! #AnaheimDucks http://duckstowels.blogspot.comvia web

If you missed it, and there's almost no way you could have, Sleek guested on Puck Daddy to open the Mount Puckmore series, naming the four faces he feels defined the Ducks franchise. Nice work, Sleek!

The Hockey News - NHL Agent Proof Diversity Has Taken Hold in Hockey
THN profiles Eustace King, agent to Emerson Etem and Devante Smith-Pelly as well as Wayne Simmonds and some of the NHL's biggest and brightest African-American and African-Canadian stars. I wanted to profile Mr. King last month, but couldn't get my schedule together with his. Luckily, Ryan Kennedy of THN has done all the work for me. It's a great story.

The Fabulous Forum - Three OC High Schools Join Ducks HS Hockey League
It's not gobs of information more than what we reported here a month ago, but for those who missed it, the Ducks' high school hockey league got some additional attention last week.

TSN - Canucks Hire Former Ducks Assistant Coach Newell Brown
A homecoming of sorts for Coach Brown, whom the Canucks picked 158th overall in the 1982 Draft. He will likely retool their power play, and Ducks fans may begin to miss him as Anaheim retools its own without him.

In-depth coverage of the initial Tweet, y'know, in case you doubted loosepucks.com  And speaking of Palmieri

USA Hockey – World Juniors Blog
Some great recap information here if you're interested-- am I really the only one that reads this stuff religiously --in how Palmieri and some other youngsters are doing at Junior Evaluation Camp. There's even a quick video clip of Palmieri (as well as Connor Brickley and Jerry D'Amigo) discussing how they deal with line shuffling.  Kimelman on NHL.com has a blog as well, but I find the USA Hockey one has better links and information, even if it isn't well-written.
