With the festive season upon us, it is the sworn duty of a hockey blog to publish at least one (1) post dedicated to creating a profound connection between the sport and the “most wonderful time of the year”.

As per TSN, the New York Rangers have extended superstar goalie Henrik Lundqvist with a lucrative 7-year contract, to begin in the 2014/15 season.
