Forget Europe, Alaska is the newest lockout destination. The Alaska Aces of the ECHL have added four NHL players to their roster, Nathan Thompson (TBL), Joey Crabb (WSH), Brandon Dubinsky (CBJ) and Scott Gomez (MTL) will hit the ice this season. With an abundance of players heading overseas, it might seem a bit odd to have four players signing with one team; in the ECHL no less. The decision to play with the Aces comes as a logical choice, as all four players hail from Anchorage, Alaska.

Winter was hooked on hockey by age 6, when she first witnessed a bench clearing brawl between the Boston Bruins and the Ottawa Senators. Growing from hockey fan to hockey player, Winter followed her passions by founding The Pink Puck. While she also loves fashion and the outdoors, hockey will always be her center ice.
