Swedish defenceman Sebastian Owuya says he’s decided to seek his hockey fortune in North America because the style of play suits his game. The 20-year-old is in Sherbrooke with the Hamilton Bulldogs at the AHL club’s training camp. Pat Hickey has more here.
Here’s more on the Bulldogs camp, from the team’s website.
• In the Czech Republic on Sunday: Locked-out Canadiens Tomas Plekanec and Tomas Kaberle are in action with HC Kladno, on the road vs HC Ceske Budejovice. The game is due to stream live here at 11 am ET.
• How Denis Brodeur came to shoot Canada’s most famous sports photograph: Dave Stubbs
• Habs oldtimers skating for a good cause: Brenda Branswell
• Bulldogs hopeful Corbin returns to his roots: Pat Hickey
Coming to HIO later Sunday: Stubbs’s in-depth one-on-one visit with Canadiens defenceman Andrei Markov, and a companion sidebar on how the Russian has been rebuilt inside and out.
And former Canadiens defenceman Sheldon Souray, now with the Anaheim Ducks, is auctioning the Habs gear (he’s photographed in it below) and that of the Edmonton Oilers and Dallas Stars he’s dug out of boxes in his Malibu, Calif., garage, all proceeds going to an Edmonton children’s hospital. The eBay auction, linked here, ends shortly after 4 pm ET on Sunday. Dig deep if you can for a good cause. Click here to link to the auctions of Souray’s Oilers and Stars stuff.
