NHL Update

I hadn't realized it, but Paul Kariya has been out since October 21 with a sprained right wrist. At the time, I remember saying he was questionable or out indefinitely, but I certainly thought he was back by now. Well, it looks like he's going to be breaking into the Colorado lineup tonight versus the Coyotes. Other news of note is the uncertain health of Colorado phenomenon Peter Forseberg. Depending on sources, he either has a problem with his groin or abdomen. And if it is indeed the later, playing would be under the risk of tearing an abdomen muscle. He is questionable for tonight's game versus the Coyotes. We are approaching the long-awaited November 22nd outdoor game between the Oilers and Canadiens, past and present. Before the game between today's Oilers and Canadiens, there will be the Heritage Classic exhibition game between team alumni; Gretzky, Guy Lafleur, Glen Sather, John Muckler, Ted Green, Jacques Demers, and Rejean Houle are some notable names expected to participate. The game will take place on a rink in Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton, and it will be the NHL's first-ever outdoor hockey game. This is something to mark your calender for and truly take in. It will be pretty neat to see the past and present Oilers and Canadiens duking it out in an open-air setting, which will almost-certainly be frigidly cold.
