Let the fun begin!
It's that time of year again, as a small town in Newfoundland is set to be the home of Kraft Hockeyville this weekend.

With the festivities set to get under way in Conception Bay South on Saturday morning, work is currently being done by NHL ice guru Dan Craig and his crew at Robert French Memorial Stadium. The in-ice logos are going in as we speak, less than 48 hours before the NHL Alumni Clinics begin at 8 a.m. Newfoundland time (or 6:30 ET).

Alumni scheduled to participate in this weekend's events include Kris King, Patrick Lalime, Laurie Boschman, Shaun Van Allen and Mathieu Schneider.

The 2011 Kraft Hockeyville game will take place on Monday as the Winnipeg Jets face the Ottawa Senators at the Mile One Centre in nearby St. John's.
Quote of the Day

Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
