A quick skate today at Parade. Most players were on the ice for around 30 minutes. Both newspaper writers were here.

Marian Gaborik skated before the rest of the team, as did Marc-Andre Bergeron, albeit without pads. Marek Zidlicky did not skate due to sickness.

One final note on last night: The Sharks, led by PR guru Tom Holy, never made it out of St. Paul after the game. Thick fog blanketed the Bay Area, so their plane never took off from the Twin Cities. I've had a lot of things happen while working with team sports, but not yet a cancelled flight.

No captain named today. I expect it tomorrow, and I'll have more then. For now, I'm off to watch the Winter Classic and catch up on some laundry with a road trip starting Saturday night.
