Former NHLers Scott Thornton and Mike Krushelnyski on 'Battle of the Blades'

TORONTO - Former NHL players Scott Thornton and Mike Krushelnyski will be among the competitors on the coming season of CBC-TVs ”Battle of the Blades.”

The competitors for the program that pairs hockey players with figure skaters are being revealed a few per day on the ”Battle of the Blades” website.

Thornton and Krushelnyski were the first two announced on Sunday.

It was revealed last week that figure skaters Kurt Browning and Jamie Sale, as well as ”Hockey Night in Canada”' commentator P.J. Stock, will serve as judges.

The new season starts Sept. 22.

Hosted by CBC sports announcer Ron MacLean, the show aired for three seasons but took a break last year.

Quote of the Day

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
