Frederic Chabot once played against Nikolai Khabibulin.
Now the two will be working together.
The Oilers yesterday announced that Chabot, 41, has been hired as the team's new goaltending consultant, replacing Pete Peeters, who had been with the team for eight seasons.
"I'm really looking forward to working with him, I heard he's a really hard-working guy," Chabot said of Khabibulin, whom the Oilers signed last week.
"That's really good for the young goalies, helping bring them up. He's had a successful career and hopefully we can bring that success here."
Chabot joins the Oilers after a stint with the Canadian World Junior Team, winning gold in Ottawa in January. He also worked as an instructor at Hockey Canada's program of excellence camp for three years.
A native of Hebertville, Que., Chabot has also worked as a goaltending consultant in Europe.
"After I stopped playing, my goal was to become a goalie coach in the NHL," Chabot said.
"So I'm pretty excited to be here. I'm pretty excited to be a member of the Oilers and I'm looking forward to working with everyone in the organization."
A career minor-leaguer, Chabot played 17 seasons of professional hockey before turning his attention to the coaching ranks.
We were watching movies one day and my friends christened me "The Mush" after the character in 'A Bronx Tale' (i.e. everything he or I touch turns to Mush). So now in my circle of friends whenever you do something clumsy "you mushed it".
I caught something really weird while watching Conan O Brien in HD.
I saw a commercial for the new Disney movie G-Force with guinea pigs in it.
See the attached.
The red lines are the edges of my screen. The green lines are the edges of the black bars on the top and bottom of the frame, which is part of the commercial/trailer. Why the heck would they make it where the guinea pig's feet and the parachute came out past the frame, but they wouldn't just make the frame full size? I'm confused.
This isn't the only time this happened on the commercial. It happened multiple times through the entire thing.
