It's almost game time
Another day of fun-filled activities is in the books in Conception Bay South, which means we're inching closer to the main event.

Sunday's festivities kicked off in the morning with two more sessions of on-ice clinics with NHL alumni including Kris King, Patrick Lalime, Laurie Boschman, Shaun Van Allen, Mathieu Schneider and Rob Zamuner. All the alumni were incredibly friendly and enjoyed their time working with Conception Bay South's youth.

A family skate at Robert French Memorial Stadium followed, as kids and parents shared the sheet of ice at the arena that is receiving the incredibly generous donation of $100,000 from Kraft that will go toward upgrading the facility.

Sunday concluded with the officials clinic, which was held by referees Mike Leggo and Gord Dwyer and linesmen Scott Driscoll and David Brisebois. Leggo and Dwyer arrived late due to a delayed flight in Montreal, but got to the rink in time to join the classroom session, where they answered questions from aspiring officials and shared some experiences of life in the NHL.

All in all, it's been another great day at Kraft Hockeyville. Can't wait for the morning skates tomorrow at the Mile One Centre. It's almost time to play hockey.
Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
