The new style of hockey smiles.

Times change.

Bobby Clarke’s gap-toothed smile. Times change.

He is the hockey player’s best friend.

For the last seven years, Marlies dentist Dr. Matthew Orzech has been cleaning up the damage from stray pucks, sticks and punches.

Quick. How many times has one of his players lost a tooth?

Fifty? One hundred?

“Three,” Dr. Orzech said. “Because of the protection from mouth guards, it’s almost unknown for a player to lose a tooth.”

So much for the image of the gap-toothed hockey player.

“Mouthguards are mandatory and even when a player gets a direct hit in the mouth ...

Leafs GM spends a night on the street.

Leafs GM Brian Burke learned that members of the LGBT community are over-represented at places such as Covenant House.

Leafs GM Brian Burke learned that members of the LGBT community are over-represented at places such as Covenant House.

For Brian Burke, walking in another man’s shoes meant sleeping on someone else’s cardboard.

The Leafs GM took part in the Covenant House Sleep Out, Thursday night.  Burke and a group of prominent Toronto business people slept on a piece of cardboard on a chilly late fall night to support the charity which supplies food, counseling and other services for homeless youth.

“To put this in perspective, I had a nice sleeping bag and ...

A day to savour how far the game has come.


There is no one day in which ignorance and stupidity fade from the mainstream and becomes the sole property of the ignorant and the stupid.

But if you look back from the high ground you can see how far the question has come.

For the first time, two European players have been inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in the same glittering year. One of which, of course, is the superb Maple Leaf Mats Sundin, cheek to jowl with Pavel Bure, Joe Sakic and Adam Oates in the Class of 2012.

War Stories: Conn Smythe And The Shrapnel That Found Steel

Conn Smythe loved the military life that nearly killed him.

Five times.

That was, by Conn Smythe’s own count, the number of times the odds were against him ever returning from war.

The man who founded the Maple Leafs fought in both World Wars and saw unspeakable carnage first-hand.

In World War I he fell into command when his superior was killed by mortar shell. It fell to him to move the battery’s 12 horse-pulled guns through heavy shelling. Many of the animals dropped dead when freed from their harnesses.

He collected guns and ammunition from dead comrades. At Vimy he charged into a ...

War Stories: Hockey’s Unknown Soldier.

Windsor native Joe Turner was projected to be a star goalie with the Detroit Red Wings.

There is in the Hockey Hall of Fame a trophy called the Turner Cup.

Windsor native Joe Turner was projected to be a star goalie with the Detroit Red Wings.

When you won the championship of the old International Hockey League, they gave you the Turner Cup. It looks a bit like the Stanley Cup with a bowl on top and bands widening from top to bottom.

There was a bid to restore a new version of the IHL a few years back but that petered out. The Turner Cup is now ...
