So I saw this news today and I'm really excited about this! Not only is the Great One going to be playing but other legends from both the Oilers and Jets will be playing!
I hope that those of you will be able to make it out to Winnipeg on October 23 to see this (I imagine the ticket prices are skyrocketing right now and the availability is probably slim).
Hope you enjoy your day and everything goes well!
It's great to be back!
Hopefully you remembered that the World Cup is happening this year and instead of waiting for October to see hockey, we can now wait for September. It may not be the same as the NHL, action-wise, but it will still feature the best players in the game and maybe some of your favourites!
