Shots on Net [26.07.10]

We will never escape golf in the offseason it seems. 

Coach Jacques Martin held his Omnium Jacques Martin on July 16 at Outaouais Golf Club in Clarence-Rockland, ON. The total money raised was $140,000 and this amount was matched by the Government of Ontario for a total of $280,000. (What a nice gesture.) The money is going to the Jacques Martin/J.R. Brisson Bursary Fund, Roger's House ($10,000), and the Roger Seguin Foundation ($5,000). Members of the Martin family, Benoit Pouliot, Kirk Muller, Trevor Timmins, assistant and goaltending coach Pierre Groulx, and director of media relations Dominick Saillant were in attendence. Here's the site for his the Omnium. Article and picture from the Ottawa Golf Examiner. Be sure to view the slideshow to see all the aforementioned people. <Ottawa Golf Examiner>

Coach Martin looks happy. Wonder what he'll look like if he gets a Cup?

Henri Richard and Yvan Cournoyer were honorary guests at the Garry Peters & Rich Pilon Charity Golf tournament in Saskatoon on July 22 and 23 to help raise money for KidSport. They spoke about their opinions on how the NHL has changed since their time, and the article mentions what they did after they retired. A good read if you want some perspective. <The StarPhoenix>

P.K. Subban will be at the Cure for Cancer Ball Challenge on Saturday, August 7 at the Master Card Center for Hockey Excellence in Toronto. What a busy summer for Subban! <The Barrie Examiner>

Canadiens assistant coach Perry Pearn was a presenter at the KMHA Summer Coaches’ Conference. There's an interesting story about Team Canada's coaches in the article. Go Mike Babcock for opening up and leading us to gold! <The Kamloops Daily News

Jim Roberts is being honoured by his highschool, Port Hope, by being inducted into their Wall of Honour. Congratulations! <Northumberland News>
Cam Connor auditioned for Wipeout Canada. I wonder why? LOL I hope you had fun sir. <Calgary Sun>

Scott Gomez' contract makes number three on Bleacher Report's list of contracts that should have been rejected by the NHL. I guess we should just add the Rangers to 'list of teams we hate'. Right after the Flyers, Leafs, and Bruins. <Bleacher Report>

ESPN gives the Bell Centre a thumbs up for health inspection. The only problem they found was that food was "at an improper temperature," with 3% of vendors with critical violations. <ESPN, first seen at The Star Tribune>

The Bulldogs will begin training and play three games against the Binghamton Senators in Newfoundland. <Hamilton Bulldogs, first seen at WIVT/WBGH News Channel 34>

Another Habs fan has passed away. Rest in peace Mr. Versloot. <Atlantic Farm Focus>

Still waiting on King Carey...
