NHL Confidential

Willie MitchellFlorida Panthers defenseman Willie Mitchell, formerly of the Vancouver Canucks, recommends Hawksworth restaurant in downtown Vancouver, located inside the Rosewood Hotel Georgia. "Kind of a west coast with a little bit of a French twist to it – a lot of depth to it," he says. "A lot of meat and a little bit of texture. … The scallops are outstanding – anything for that matter."

Throwback Thursday: “Forgive My Misconduct”

Today we introduce a new feature on AllPuck.com: Throwback Thursday.

Throwback Thursday can be anything, really, as long as it isn’t current. And there’s nothing current about the music video above, featuring then-Los Angeles Kings forwards Dave Taylor, Marcel Dionne and Charlie Simmer (the “Triple Crown” line).

Credit George Strombopoulos of CBC.ca for tipping me off to this gem a while back. It makes for a strong opening act on Throwback Thursday. Here’s the back story, according to Strombopoulos:

Back in the late seventies, the Los Angeles Kings’ Triple Crown Line that consisted of Dave Taylor, Marcel Dionne and Charlie Simmer recorded the single ‘Please Forgive My Misconduct Last Night’ under the name Marcel Dionne and the Puck-Tones. On the other side of the 45, Phil Esposito and some other Rangers performed ‘Hockey Sock Rock’. All of the proceeds went toward diabetes research, but it’s fair to say that Dionne and Esposito (no. 4 and 5 on NHL’s all-time scoring list) were better at their day jobs.
