  The Canadian Hockey League has set up a BBS. Jim Price, the CHL Director 
of Information, has had it going since about February 1993.
  In addition to up-to-date stats on the CHL throughout the season, NHL 
Draft lists, etc.  The CHLBBS also has a conference set up for the 
Canadian Amateur Hockey Association.
  The CAHA conference contains information of National Championships, its 
Hockey Resource Centre items, coaching, refereeing, registration figures, 
National Junior Team lists, up-to-date news releases, almost everything 
you would want to know on Canadian amateur hockey.
  The number for the CHLBBS line is (416) 299-6839, and voice support at 
(416) 298-3523.  It is in DOS format using PROCOMM, so your settings are 8 
data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity and echo off.

  The Canadian Hockey League BBS, which as been operating for the past 
year as a pay-per-use service for media, National Hockey League personnel 
and other hockey organizations, has introduced FREE public access for 
hockey fans.
  Our free service includes standings and scores from the three major 
junior leagues in the CHL as well as NHL information, numerous other

  The Canadian Hockey League has set up a BBS. Jim Price, the CHL Director 
of Information, has had it going since about February 1993.
  In addition to up-to-date stats on the CHL throughout the season, NHL 
Draft lists, etc.  The CHLBBS also has a conference set up for the 
Canadian Amateur Hockey Association.
  The CAHA conference contains information of National Championships, its 
Hockey Resource Centre items, coaching, refereeing, registration figures, 
National Junior Team lists, up-to-date news releases, almost everything 
you would want to know on Canadian amateur hockey.
  The number for the CHLBBS line is (416) 299-6839, and voice support at 
(416) 298-3523.  It is in DOS format using PROCOMM, so your settings are 8

12. USENET Hockey Pool

  The USENET Hockey Pool is in its 7th year of operation.  Last season, 
there were 261 teams from literally all over the world: every Canadian 
province, about 30 of the 50 U.S. states, and nine other countries in 
Europe and Asia.
  The pool operates like a stock market.  You start off with 1000 points 
to "buy" the players of your team.  You can sell and buy players during 
the season based upon their current point performance.  Transactions are 
made by sending email messages, and standings are posted to 
rec.sport.hockey on a weekly basis.
  This year's pool will begin in early September, with an entry deadline 
of October 5.  Send email to Dave Becker (dbecker@media.mit.edu) for more 
information.

14. Answers to some frequently asked questions:

 Q: Why are the Montreal Canadiens called the Habs?
 A: According to the magazine "Les Canadiens" (Number 2 of the 92-93 
season), the following is the origin of the nickname "Habitants/Habs":
    "Partial credit for this nickname actually goes to an American. 
Reporter Tex Rickard had picked up on a rumour (a false one, of course) 
someone had told him about the 'H' on the Canadiens' uniform. It seems 
that someone mentioned that it stood for "habitant", a French word that in 
those days was used to denote the farmers of Quebec.
    "'This guy told Tex that the French-speaking players on the team came 
from the country, and since they were "farmers", they were therefore 
"habitants!"' recalls Camille Desroches. 'Habs' is simply a short form of 
the word."
    "That was back in the mid-twenties. The Canadiens had just won the 
1923-24 Stanley Cup, and two teams from New York were just joining the NHL 
(the Americans in 25 and the Rangers in 26). To understand Rickard's 
thinking, it helps to remember that this was also a period of intense 
development in a number of more remote regions of Quebec..."
 
 Q: Why is the Montreal Canadiens logo a large C with an H within it?
 A: When Club de Hockey Canadien was founded for the 1909/10 season, the 
uniform consisted of a navy blue sweater with white narrow bands at the 
shoulders connected to a band across the chest. The center of the chest 
band had a white "C" on it. The pants were white and the stockings were 
red.
When the team was sold the following year, it was renamed Club Athletique 
Canadien. The sweater is now red with a green Maple Leaf in the center 
bearing a gothic "C" in its center. The uniform was changed once again for 
the 1911/12 season. The Maple Leaf on the sweater remained, but the 
sweater now had blue, white, and red stripes. The "C" was replaced with 
"CAC".
The Canadiens uniform was redesigned for the 1914/15 season. It had a 
similar design to today's road uniform. The center crest had a "CA" 
instead of the famous "CH".
The team reverted back to Club de Hockey Canadien for the 1916/17 season. 
The crest was now a big "C" and inside a smaller "H", to represent "Club 
de Hockey Canadien".
Other minor alterations have taken place over time, but the traditional 
"CHC" has remained.

 Q: What is the origin of the term "hat trick?"
 A: Hat trick - Three successive performances of a feat by the same 
individual in a contest.  The oldest use is probably in cricket, where a 
hat trick is the dismissal by the bowler of 3 batsmen with 3 consecutive 
balls, for which the bowler apparently received a bonus of a new hat.  The 
term is widely used in hockey and soccer to indicate the scoring of 3 
goals by one individual in a single game.  Originally the hat trick was 
the scoring of 3 consecutive unanswered goals (commonly referred to as a 
"natural" hat trick), but they need not be consecutive or unanswered to 
qualify as a hat trick today.  The term has also been used of a jockey's 
riding a winner in 3 consecutive races or winners in an annual race for 3 
consecutive years.  A notable exception to the 3 successive performances 
which characterize a hat trick in other sports is its occasional use in 
baseball to mean that a player has hit for the cycle - a single, double, 
triple, and home run in one game.  The term was originally applied 
to hockey when the Biltmore Hat Company of Guelph, Ontario offered a 
free hat to any player scoring three goals in a game.  For many 
years, the Guelph junior hockey club carried the nickname 
"Biltmores".  Source:  Webster's Sports Dictionary.  G. & C. Merriam
Company (Springfield, MA):  1976.

 Q: When did the NHL begin using a five-minute overtime period?

 Q: What's the story concerning Jim Schoenfeld, Don Koharski and "Have 
another doughnut!"?
 A: In the Wales Conference finals in 1988, the coach of the New Jersey 
Devils was very upset with the calls of referee Koharski. At the end of 
the game, the two met in the runway to the dressing room. Besides the 
arguing, Schoenfeld was accused of bumping Koharski (he may have tripped 
by catching his skate off of the runway carpet). More words followed, with 
Koharski claiming that Schoenfeld pushed him and Schoenfeld calling him 
"You fat pig! Go have another Doughnut!" etc. The result was a one game 
suspension of Schoenfeld by the league. NJ management challenged the 
suspension by going outside the league and getting a court injunction 
rendering the suspension invalid (remember this is playoff time). The 
referees for the next game decided not to call the game, and after an hour 
delay, New Jersey's off-ice officials dressed and the game was played. NJ 
beat Boston in that game. Schoenfeld served the suspension the next game 
since the game was in NJ. Boston ended up winning the series 4-3.
