EDMONTON, AB -- Sitting on the balcony of his Sherwood Park home sipping coffee from a mug reading "Canada" with red maple leaves stippling the sides, Kyle Brodziak looks onto a view that isn't new to he and his family.
"We've come back every summer since we left Edmonton," Brodziak said. "It's still the middle of summer and hockey's not really on your mind yet, so it doesn't feel quite real that I'm an Oiler yet."
The Brodziak clan is here to stay after the centre returned to the Oilers on July 1. For the first time in nine years they won't have to pack their bags or say their goodbyes to friends and family come the end of summer.
