PHOENIX - Edmonton Oilers goalie Nikolai Khabibulin on Tuesday withdrew an appeal to his extreme drunken Santonio Holmes Jersey -driving conviction, accepting a 30-day jail sentence.Khabibulin had appealed the jail term after being sentenced back in August of last year.But his Phoenix lawyer, Mark DuBiel, said Tuesday that Khabibulin wanted to drop the appeal because the case likely would have prevented him from going to the Oilers' training camp and could have lasted into the season."Despite a surances by legal counsel regarding the strength of my appeals case, I have decided to withdraw my appeal and proceed Anthony Johnson Jersey with sentencing," Khabibulin said in a statement. "Once completed, I eagerly anticipate a timely return to Edmonton for training camp, where I will strive to be the best player, teammate and citizen po sible."The 38-year-old played for Phoenix from 1996-99. He signed a four-year, US$15 million deal with Edmonton in 2009.DuBiel said Khabibulin will serve the first 15 days of his sentence in jail with work release and the other half of his sentence under house arrest. He will have to wear an ankle monitor Leonard Williams Jersey and is subject to random alcohol testing.Khabibulin also was ordered to pay a $1,500 fine and complete an alcohol program.Khabibulin was pulled over in his Ferrari near his Phoenix-area home on Feb. 8, 2010, after the car was clocked at 70 m.p.h. in a 45 Ben Ijalana Jersey m.p.h. zone.Police said an officer smelled alcohol and Khabibulin was arrested after a field sobriety test showed his blood-alcohol level at .164, more than double the legal limit.
EDMONTON - The former coach of the Edmonton Oilers says it's tough to leave a team midway through its rebuild.But in his first comments after his contract wasn't renewed, Tom Renney suggested that Ryan Murphy Jerseyhis focus on the team's future might have been part of his problem."I believe I coached with tomorrow in mind as opposed to today and that might have hurt me," Renney told reporters Wednesday."I really have a vision for Robert Thomas Jersey the team and felt that, even in some cases at the expense of my own opportunity or existence."Renney said he tried to coach with the team's future in mind."You make some decisions that suggest we've got to make sure that this happens so that'll happen down the road. That's not easy. Devon Kennard Jersey "That was the mandate for me."The Oilers announced last week that Renney wouldn't be back.He had joined the team for the 2010-11 season and finished with an NHL-worst 25-45-12 record. This season the team barely improved with a 32-40-10 record for second-last overall.Still, Renney said he believes Sean Donnelly Jerseythe team has a great future with a nucleus of young players acquired through the high draft picks those bottom-of-the-barrel finishes led to. He just wishes he could stick around to be part of it.
Its Randall Cunningham Jersey the most famous tongue snatching of all-time. In an incident that belies the much-celebrated relationship between man and dog, Edmonton Oilers coach Craig MacTavish once ripped the tongue of Flames mascot Harvey the Hound right out of the Calgary canines furry mouth. Seems like an ironic form of retribution given the one thing Harvey never does is verbally hound the visiting team. In his line of work, nobody does. Still, his antics behind the Oilers bench during a 2003 Josh Andrews Jersey installment of the Battle of Alberta were enough to incite MacTavish. But Harvey had his backers. In a show of solidarity for their fellow entertainer, many mascots showed up at the 2003 NHL All-Star Game, held just a few weeks after the incident, with newly attached tongues wagging out. Montreal fans have been treated to Youppis antics for many years in all seasons. The ambiguous collection of orange hair worked Montreal Expos baseball games from 1979 until the team moved to Chance Warmack Jersey Washington in 2004. He was the first mascot to be to sed from a Major League Baseball game (at the behest of Los Angles Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda) and is one of the three mascots to be honored by baseballs Hall of Fame. Youppi hasnt mi sed a beat Brandon Brooks Jersey since moving over to the Bell Centre, thrilling Canadiens fans young and old with his energetic routines.

Pucks fly into the bench in nearly every NHL game, but on Monday night, Sharks winger Tomas Hertl couldnt get out of the way in time. Logan Coutures stray clearing attempt caught Hertl in the face, forcing him out of the game for nearly the entire third period. If youve been to a hockey Shakim Phillips Jersey game at any profe sional level, youve certainly heard the announcement to always keep your eye on the puck because it travels at high speeds and can Doug Legursky Jersey cause injury if it leaves the playing surface. San Jose Sharks winger Tomas Hertl is living proof of the damage a flying puck can do.During Mondays game against the Winnipeg Jets, Hertls teammate Logan Couture turned to a fire a puck out of the Sharks zone on a penalty kill. His accuracy was just a bit off, as the puck went zooming into Mike Mitchell Jersey the San Jose bench, striking Hertl in the face.Hertl left the ice immediately, but due to the strange set up at Winnipegs MTS Centre, he was forced to skate acro s the entire width of the ice with help from the Sharks trainer and teammate Tommy Wingels.
