Here is The Daily Chomp's Monday Mailbag answering your questions sent in by Twitter (tweet @SanJoseSharks using #AskSJS), Facebook, or email.

Recently someone was fined for a "slew foot" on Ryane Clowe. I checked my  HOCKEY FOR DUMMIES book and the word "slew" appeared nowhere. What does "slew foot" mean?
-RBN

TDC: Slew Footing is a term in hockey used to describe a player being taken down essentially by way of a hook or trip. A common example may be when two players are fighting for position, one player uses his own skate to push the back heel of the other player's skate, resulting in the other player losing his balance and falling to the ground. Typically this is done in "sly" fashion as to avoid looking like an obvious penalty.

In the play you referenced, Ryane Clowe was racing for the loose puck along the boards in a game against the Phoenix Coyotes. Coyotes forward Alexandre Bolduc was trailing Clowe in the race. As both players began to extend their stick out to make a play, the referee ruled that Bolduc used his stick to push the back heel of Clowe, thus sending Clowe to the ice in an uncontroled crash into the boards. Bolduc was given an 2:00 minute minor penalty for hooking on the play.

Bolduc was later fined by the NHL for the play. You can read the article here.

Who chooses the "3 Stars of the Game"?
