We hear that:
O'Sullivan will skate tonight.
McMillan still out, and Bulmer, too.
Larsson is questionable. The Swedes start early, he would need permission to come to the Wild camps.
Wild still interviewing multiple contenters for head coach position.
And Finland won GOLD at the IIHL...with the help of Finnish 'wunderkind' Mikael Granlund, at 19 an accomplished player, who will stay put in Europe next season.
The goal tied the CHL’s Championship series at two games apiece for the Mudbugs (vs. Colorado Eagles) with Game 5 set for Friday night at the CenturyTel Center.
Then more in Windsor, Colorado!
Here's a bit about the CHL' history you might want to know:
The CHL will be entering its 19th season this fall with 18 member teams playing across 12 states. This season marks a historic one for the league after the CHL and the International Hockey League (IHL), boasting 59 years of professional hockey, joined forces on June 1, 2010.
The CHL and IHL combined to draw close to three million fans during the 2009-10 season.
Arguably the most significant change over the past 19 years came in May of 2001, as the Central and Western Professional Hockey Leagues joined forces at a press conference in Oklahoma that combined the top markets within both organizations under the CHL banner. The merger has been highly successful, with the CHL reaching several significant attendance marks in each season since. In the 2009-2010 campaign, close to two million people walked through the gates at games in the CHL.
The CHL welcomes the Bloomington PrairieThunder, Dayton Gems, Evansville IceMen, Fort Wayne Komets and Quad City Mallards to the league this season. All but Evansville played in the IHL last season and the IceMen played in Muskegon in the IHL during the 2009-10 season.
