This is pretty cool!

    Anchorage's Scott Gomez, who twice brought the Stanley Cup to town, is now bringing his game to town.

    Gomez, whose successful National Hockey League career with the New Jersey Devils is on hold because of the NHL lockout, signed a contract Monday with the Alaska Aces. He'll be in uniform for the team Friday when the Aces play the San Diego Gulls at Sullivan Arena.

    Gomez, a two-time Stanley Cup winner, NHL All-Star and 2000 rookie of the year, was due to make $2.9 million with the Devils this season. He'll make $500 a week with the Aces, who play in the AA-level ECHL.

    "I figured one day if I ever run for mayor, this is always going to look good for me," a smiling Gomez said at an afternoon press conference. "I'm excited for my whole family and all my friends who will get to see me play.

    "And it's just great to have the chance to give back to Alaska."

    Gomez, 24, is the first NHL player to agree to play in the 28-team ECHL. Hundreds of NHL players have joined teams in Europe, and Gomez himself was offered a six-figure salary to play in Russia.

    But he decided to come home instead.

Man, this sucks. Talk about a ringer.

Of course, I will have to get tickets for the next home game against Alaska just so I can watch our team get demolished.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

Ditto me. Too bad Fresno doesn't have any NHL'ers to bring in.

They don't. The 3rd number you probably saw in the standings isn't for ties, it's for overtime losses. The league gives two points for a win (in regulation, overtime, or by shootout), one point for an overtime (including shootout)
