|The outdoor hockey league?|
What we know at this point is that the NHL has approved a CHL request to hold multiple outdoor games December 31st in Detroit. The target venue seems to be Comerica Park, where we could see the Knights and Spitfires in action against the OHL's two Michigan based clubs. Having those four teams involved in the festivities would make the most sense. Saginaw and Plymouth are automatic. The Spits, a geographical choice. The Knights, arguably the country's top junior hockey brand, the popular selection. We'll see how, if anything, shakes out?
Again, we have trusted word that approval on the plan has been granted and the ball in motion.
And how 'bout those Leafs? The grind towards the finish line is going to be exhausting. Hey, when wins don't come easy... roll'em up, head down, see what happens?
