Heads Up

  • The promoter of a hockey fight competition which had been cancelled by Prince George city council has won the second round.
    After receiving further legal advice, city council voted 8-1 on last night to reverse last week's decision to cancel the controversial Battle of the Hockey Enforcers set for Aug. 27 at CN Centre.
  • A New Jersey man's Zamboni driving days are on ice. Authorities say John Peragallo was drunk when he drove the four-ton ice-cleaning machine at a sports arena in Morristown on Sunday.
    Police say an employee reported that the machine was speeding and nearly crashing into boards. Police say Peragallo had a blood-alcohol level of .12. People are legally drunk in New Jersey at .08.
    The 63-year-old could lose his driver's license for motor vehicles and Zambonis if he's convicted.
  • NFL Exec VP/Labor Relations Harold Henderson appeared on NFL Network’s “NFL Total Access” from the annual NFL Rookie Symposium, where he talked about the ongoing CBA negotiations. Henderson: “The economic issues are at the forefront. We certainly have other system issues that are involved too, but until we get the economic issues resolved the others are not going to fall in place.”
