In the NBA, "gone fishin'" is a bad thing.

In hockey, it's a conduit for awesomeness. Case-in-point: the maritime adventures of Pittsburgh Penguins star center Evgeni Malkin, who recently took to the sea and snagged a pair of quite sizable fish:

Then Malkin decided to go diving ...

... where he found WHOA WATCH OUT EVGENI IT'S HUGE!!!!

Turns out that's just a whale shark, which is not a known danger to humans. In truth, this isn't even close Malkin's must frightening run-in with a Shark.

And hey, at least Malkin didn't actually ride the whale shark like this guy.

The NHL in 2013-14

The start of the season might be months away, but that didn't stop the NHL from making news Friday, as the league released its schedule, revealed the names of its four divisions (Atlantic, Metropolitan, Central and Pacific) and agreed to halt play and allow its stars to compete in the Sochi Olympics. So yeah, there's a lot of time to think about it -- and a lot to digest as we look toward the 2013-14 season.

How do you feel about the NHL's four new division names (Atlantic, Metropolitan, Central, Pacific)?
