posted at 10/6/2013 12:34 AM EDT
Working tonight in a sector where a few hotels are. Ran ito a Team Canada hockey offiical (showed me some credentials) he had some Team Canada jerseys that he told me arent being released until November 1st. I really like the Red one, especiallyhow it has the maple leaf coming out of the collar on the shoulders. So he gave me some info, I hate to do this, not my style but I'll pass along what he told me, some interesting tid-bits. Keep in mind, an injury could come, and he also pointed out, some players have in their contracts a clause should anything happen to them in a non NHL event. Here they are.
1. Bergeron, obviously made the team.
2. Lucic and Marchand did not, but they are on the taxi squad.
3. Same with St. Louis.
4. Hall, Eberle and Thornton made the team.
5. Talk right now is Luongo would be starting goalie. That could change, but right now it's him.
6. Some point last year Tyler Seguin was involved in a car accident in the Toronto area and was driving while intoxicated..It was kept hush, he made no mention of the Police but more the Fire Dept....Not sure how that works up there.
Again, guy had credentials he showed me, was at the B's-Wings game tonight and I got to talking to thim. Just sharing with you fellas what he told me.
