10 player

some aboriginal nhl’er info

tonight is Native American Heritage Night at Staples Center, so in honor of that i just sorta threw this post together right before i had to leave for that game. this is mostly stuff i knew off the top of my head tho so if any of y’all know anything else, please feel free to add it!
edit: check out the second post i made on this subject!

  • there are currently 10 native american players in the nhl; 6 play in the western conference, only 4 play in the east
  • the players include Jordan Nolan and Dwight King (LAK), Kyle Chipchura (ARI), Rene Bourque (COL), Micheal Ferland (CGY), Jordin Tootoo (CHI), Vernon Fiddler (NJD), Carey Price (MTL), T.J. Oshie (WSH), and Cody McCormick (BUF)
  • most of the players are either Metis or Ojibwe:
    Bourque, Chipchura, Fiddler, & King: Metis
    Ferland: Cree
    McCormick: Oneida & Chippewa/Ojibwe
    Nolan: Ojibwe & Maliseet
    Oshie: Anishinaabe/Ojibwe
    Price: Ulkatcho First Nation
    Tootoo: Inuk
  • Oshie is the only American-born native out of the 10. all the rest are Canadian natives
  • Price and Oshie are the only 2 to play for their respective countries at the Olympics, while Chipchura, Tootoo, and Bourque have played internationally in other competitions
  • Tootoo having to play with the Blackhawks is cruel and unusual punishment of the worst sort
  • Fiddler shares a birthday with me (and Steve Yzerman)
  • Oshie’s name in the Ojibwe language is “Keeway Gaaboo,” which means “coming home”
  • Tootoo’s name in Inuktitut is written as ᔪᐊᑕᓐ ᑐᑐ and his middle name, Kudluk, means “thunder”
  • Ferland, Price, King, and Nolan are the only players who haven’t played for multiple NHL teams
  • Nolan and King are the only two Stanley Cup champions out of the 10 while Fiddler and Chipchura were Calder Cup champions (in 2004 and 2007 respectively)
  • Jordan Nolan after both Stanley Cup victories:


also, to any other native nhl/hockey fans out there: reblog this and tag what
tribe(s) you are; i wanna see how many of us there are and how many different cultures we represent!

02/10/17 - It felt good for Friday to come after a very long and busy week. I was scrambling around in court all morning. I had a couple of pleas in Federal Court, and a couple other clients in custody. I managed to finish in court by lunch and caught up on things in the office in the afternoon. I got my preorder of the new Weeknd album on vinyl, and bumped that at home. Steph and I ordered pizza from Rustic Slice and watched Silk, which is fantastic.

Even more reasons Hau is my favorite rival:

What a pal!!

With such precious reactions, too!!

(lmao, my face when Lusamine says she’s over 40, like first off, GOD DAMN, Lysandre would probably like you for looking ageless. Second, holy SHIT I was not expecting an in-game age confirmation in this game. The last time I got one was like…Platinum, with Cyrus being 27.)

Also, looks like we’re 11 again in this game (LG/FR, player characters are also 11 while BW had the player characters visualized as 16 and according to bulbapedia, ORAS has you and the rival at 12…just so you know).

GOTTA LOVE WORLD BUILDING!!

ALSO

YOU BETTER WATCH YOUR BACK, TEAM SKULL, BECAUSE ANYONE WHO MAKES HAU SAD WILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH ME!!

Widow is so incredibly calm about murdering people. Like in the middle of a melee scrum on the objective during overtime, I’ve had everyone shooting at me, I’m screaming and jumping around, I have 9 health, the healer is dead, the end is nigh, all is dark, and when I finally kill that Reaper with a lucky pistol whip to the face, Widow is just casually like, “Pfft, please,” like that was the easiest thing she’s ever done and it didn’t just take 10 years off her player’s life and meanwhile I’m rocking in the corner like how am i alive how am i alive how am i alive how am i

EA Access Members - you can start downloading the Andromeda 10-hour trial now!

  • There should be a download button for the trial on that page.
  • The download will tell you that you can launch at 42%, but we’ve seen reports that this might blackscreen / error out, possibly having to re-download afterwards.  It’s best to wait to 100%
  • Remember that the trial is for 10 hours.  Reportedly there is a hard-stopping point in the single player campaign, but you can play as much multiplayer as you’d like in those 10 hours.

This is confirmed for the US (I’m downloading it right now! :) ).
