Another day, another AP article getting a really basic fact about hockey completely wrong. See if you can spot it!
CANONSBURG, Pa. — Penguins forward Jordan Staal is practicing with the team for the first time since May…
Staal resumed skating last week, when the team said he needed additional conditioning work and practicing before he could play again. The Penguins haven’t set a timetable for his return.
Staal was a finalist last season for the Selke Trophy, given to the NHL’s best two-way defenseman. Until this month, Staal had not missed a regular-season game due to injury during his five-season career.
Didja catch it? It was the part where they said the position that Jordan Staal doesn’t play and that the Selke Trophy isn’t for. Also, it’s boldfaced.
Does the “P” stand for “People who don’t know very basic facts and yet are professionally compensated to provide said facts to the public?”
