Patrick Kane might have some competition in the ridiculous drinker department. According to mlive.com , Detroit Red Wings prospect Riley Sheahan was arrested for allegedly driving drunk. In the wrong lane. While wearing a Teletubby costume. We can't make this stuff up.   Want more? Discuss this article and others on RedEye Sports' Facebook page .

Every NHL player remembers his first time. Scoring a goal, that is. Blackhawks Brandon Bollig, Michael Kostka, Brandon Pirri and Joakim Nordstrom all experienced that feeling earlier this season. Of course, whether it happened days or years ago, that feeling never goes away. So what's it like the first time players light the lamp? We asked, the Blackhawks answered. . PATRICK KANE Oct. 19, 2007, vs. Colorado "It's exciting, I remember my first one, against Colorado.

Kate Upton naked. Jay Cutler smoking. Hopefully I have your attention now. Had I started off just talking about hockey, most of you probably would have moved on to something else. The NHL is locked out and fan interest in the labor negotiations is lower than Adam Dunn's batting average. Despite this, why is it important the NHL comes back? Because fantasy football is over. You don't have to be a sports degenerate to play fantasy football. It caters to fans who can't pronounce Rob Gronkowski's name as well as chicks who wear pink jerseys.

Your Blackhawks gear has gone through a lot this postseason. Hats have been flung at TVs. You've sweat all over your sweater during heart-stopping overtimes. Several T-shirts stink of beer after elaborate goal celebrations. That could all end tonight. Should the Hawks hoist Lord Stanley's Cup at TD Garden with a win over the Bruins in Game 6, don't waste any time getting your official NHL champion merchandise. DICK's Sporting Goods and Sports Authority locations around Chicago will provide fans the opportunity to buy official locker room T-shirts, hats and...

I would like to send out a quick thank you note to the Chicago Blackhawks. For two things. The first is for coming back and giving us some hockey, helping us through the winter malaise. Secondly, for inadvertently inventing a much needed cure for winter sports. Ladies and gentlemen, the 48-game season. It's the perfect compliment to our ADD-riddled, hyperactive, social media culture. It's the Twitter of sports seasons. And you love it. Here's why: Everything we need to know, we can find out in 48 games.

If an NFL or NHL athlete suffers a hard hit to the head or body, he is required to jump through a few hoops before he can play again. NFL Players are subjected to the sideline concussion evaluation, which assesses orientation, memory, concentration, balance and symptoms. Some of the sample questions: What day is it? Did your team win its last game? Can you repeat a list of five words? If the player experiences a loss of consciousness, unresponsiveness, confusion or amnesia, he is considered a "No Go" and shouldn't be allowed to return to the game or practice.

The 2013 Blackhawks have long since left the 2006-07 Anaheim Ducks in their dust, but oh, there are mountains left to climb. Chicago's streak of games with at least a point reached 22 this season and sits at 28 overall if you count last season. It's time to see how they stack up against some of the greatest winning/unbeaten regular-season streaks in history.   NHL 1979-80 Philadelphia Flyers: 35 games The "Broad Street Bullies" own the pinnacle of unbeaten streaks in hockey; it's also the longest in major American sports.

The days are getting darker for Bulls fans, and I'm not just talking about the end of daylight saving time. Millionaires are fighting with billionaires over a few percentage points of a multibillion-dollar pot. If you're a Bulls fan, you've braced yourself for a cold, hard truth: There might not be any ball this season. Before you compose a handwritten letter to David Stern, streaked with tears of frustration, anger and whiskey (we've all been there), know that you've got a friend.

Stop it, Chicago. Just stop it. Now. The Blackhawks are not going to trade Patrick Kane for a goalie. They are not going to trade him for a defenseman. Or two defensemen. Or a goalie and a defenseman. That's the type of talk being tossed out on talk radio, TV sports shows and across the vast expanse of the Internet these days. I suppose it's no surprise it has come to this, considering the Blackhawks are suffering through a nine-game losing streak. But parting with Kane to salvage this season is shortsighted.

Difficult to watch. The thuggery. The brutality. The career-threatening injuries. And that's just the NBA. How about that NHL? Here's a secret: There's only one reason any team, in any sport, would resort to violence. It's because they can't get it done on talent alone. So long Raffi Torres, hopefully forever. You make Dino Cicarelli look like a choir boy. And so long, fun NHL. This is not the league of Rocket Richard. This is the league of the Hansen brothers.

To put it mildly, the Blackhawks' current streak is impressive. Through 22 games, they have earned at least a point in each one. And they've done it all sorts of ways, including Sunday's win over Detroit, which required late-game heroics from Patrick Kane. In addition to a Stanley Cup title, the Hawks are chasing the 1979-80 Philadelphia Flyers, who went 35 straight games with a point. And Chicago is doing this with only a week of training camp, which makes their run even more amazing.

Lord, I love the NHL. Right when they lure me back, almost all the way back, they do something stupid like float realignment. Fine, except the move would send the Detroit Red Wings back to the Eastern Conference. OK, I can put up with the huge ticket prices, all the modernity, all the newbie Blackhawks fans who never saw a game at the old Chicago Stadium, all that good stuff. But, I need my Original Six. Sorry, as much as I complain about Detroit, with all its fans walking the streets whenever the Wings come to town, we want them on that wall.

 There's no question the Blackhawks' record-breaking start to this season feels straight out of Hollywood. So we've got our own awards to hand out to the NHL-leading squad, Oscar-style.   BEST PERFORMANCE IN A LEADING ROLE Patrick Kane Lots of great candidates here, but Kaner leads the team in goals and assists (nine and 14, respectively, entering Sunday) and has stayed out of the headlines off the ice. The perfect combination.   BEST PERFORMANCE IN A SUPPORTING ROLE The Hawks' opponents You need some help to go undefeated in...

  Ben Smith isn't exactly homeless, but you might call him a drifter of sorts. The sometimes-Blackhawks-rookie sleeps in a regular bed every night in Rockford, and he manages a decent job cooking for himself on a small, two-burner stove in his modest Candelwood Suites studio. Yet, if you ask where he calls home, Smith quickly says Connecticut, even though he hasn't been to the Constitution State since a Christmas visit with his family. The soft-spoken 23-year-old winger's semi-nomadic lifestyle is hardly a conscious...

On a 45-degree night in Rogers Park last week, Tom O'Connell laced up his skates and hopped on the ice, though you'll forgive him if he felt as though he stepped into a time machine. "I started playing outdoor hockey when I was a youngster," the Des Plaines resident said. "That's all I ever played. That's what I grew up with, so there are a lot of great memories. " Indeed, there was a sort of "Sandlot" feel under the lights at Warren Park on opening night for the Chicago Outdoor Hockey League, the only outdoor recreational ice hockey league in the city.
