It has been a long summer, but hockey is back for the NHL this weekend. Players were at training facilities taking physicals and getting reacquainted Friday, and nearly every team will conduct its first official practice Saturday.
Such an occasion is worthy of a name like "Super Saturday," so we're going to try and provide coverage worthy of a day that is highly anticipated by everyone in the hockey community. NHL.com has correspondents in many NHL cities, and they will be filing dispatches to this blog throughout the day.
Want to know how a star player looks on the ice after joining a new team or returning from an injury, or maybe which goalie has the best-looking new mask? Check back here throughout the day Saturday for many, many updates from around the NHL.
Also be sure to watch for updates from our correspondents on Twitter, who will be using the hashtag #NHLSuperSaturday to help fans follow along with ease.
