"The game is growing so much in Kansas City, and we're just happy to promote it even more," Blues defenseman Joel Edmundson said last month after visiting Kansas City for two days that included radio and TV interviews and a youth hockey clinic. "I had a blast out here. Skating around with these kids, you realize there is a lot of (hockey) potential in this city. The game is growing, and it's awesome to see."
For fans that can't make the trip, action will be available live on KMOX 1120 AM, at www.kmox.com/listen and on Sports Radio 98.1 HD3.
