Q&A With Victor Hedman: On Peaking in his 30s, Chasing a Stanley Cup Repeat and More

  Q&A With Victor Hedman: On Peaking in his 30s, Chasing a Stanley Cup Repeat and More The Hockey News recently caught up with the Tampa Bay Lightning's all-world defenseman to discuss a variety of topics, including why a 2021 Stanley Cup win might feel very different from last year's.Victor Hedman and the Tampa Bay Lightning achieved greatness last year, but it didn't satiate them. Not when they hoisted the 2020 Stanley Cup amid global circumstances so strange that the championship felt surreal in some ways. They’re once again one of the league’s most dominant teams, and they’re shaping up as a legitimate threat to repeat as Cup champs.

Hazing gets a bad rap because a lot of organizations just go overboard. We’ve all heard nightmare stories about fraternities and sororities doing dangerous, even deadly things, and some high school football hazing, even cheerleading hazing, is just wrong.

At its best though, hazing is a way of bringing a new member into a culture, a way to tease, embarrass and prod someone to accept a role within a group.

LAPD Responds to Report of Shooting Near the Set of The Rookie in Los Angeles

  LAPD Responds to Report of Shooting Near the Set of The Rookie in Los Angeles Police tell PEOPLE that there were possibly one to two male suspects, but had no other description of the shooter or shooters . Never miss a story — sign up for PEOPLE's free daily newsletter to stay up-to-date on the best of what PEOPLE has to offer, from juicy celebrity news to compelling human interest stories. The Rookie, which is currently filming its third season, stars Nathan Fillion as John Nolan. The series follows Nolan as the LAPD's oldest rookie officer and is based on the real-life story of LAPD Officer William Norcross, who joined the force in his 40s.

In other words, it ain’t always bad.

The NBA has hazed rookies for decades. You might be told to carry bags or bring drinks or whatever the veterans ask, and if you don’t do it, you’ll get very very unpopular very quickly.

Former Blue Devil Cassius Stanley clearly feels some of the things he’s asked to do are stupid, plus, as a Pacer teammate here points out, he hasn’t been coming in to do extra work.

So his teammates did what NBA guys do with young bucks: they reminded him that there’s a pecking order, and expectations, and that he needs to remember it.

All fair, but it may be a while before he eats popcorn again.
