EDMONTON, AB - It was always going to be a strange night for Ken Holland.
The new Oilers General Manager and President of Hockey Operations has only been with the Oilers since May 6, but before that the 63-year-old spent 36 years with the Detroit Red Wings organization.
For 22 of those seasons, he donned the mantle of Red Wings' GM.
"It's going to be strange seeing a Red Wing jersey skating around and rooting against it, but that's the way it goes," the executive said pre-game surrounded by local and visiting media outside the Oilers locker room.
"It's going to be a strange night. For me, I want to get the two points. It's a huge two points and then we turn the page on to Winnipeg."
Consider it done.
