Blades Pre Season Underway.

1st some late very sad news to share. Former Blade and Maple Leaf Wade Belak who was only 35 years old passed away this week. In his condo in Toronto. This is the 3rd hockey player that the hockey world has lost this summer. All of them enforcer/tough guys.

The NHL better step in and do something. Just because these players go out and fight every night does not mean that they are invincible. It is a very stressful role to play these days. As seen by the comments made by George Laraque,Tyson Nash,Cody Franson etc.

My condolences go out to all of his family and friends.

Now onto some better hockey news. The Blades kicked off their pre season on Wednesday night with a tilt in Prince Albert against the Raiders. Saskatoon managed to score 1st. That was all that they could really do.

I am excited for Saturday. Also to see the rookies and players looking to earn a spot on the Blades roster or even just trying to get listed/protected by the Blades. Hockey is Back!!!!
