SaskTel Centre in Saskatoon is once again hosting its annual September preseason NHL game, this time featuring the Edmonton Oilers and the Minnesota Wild, with the much heralded Connor McDavid and Regina native Jordan Eberle the star attractions in the Oilers lineup.
As usual, though, the locals care more about the losing Roughriders than about this NHL preseason game. Plus, people here are again doing their usual annual whining about not enough star NHL players in the lineup in Saskatoon. (What do you expect, this is supposed to be the preseason!)
So, just like what happened when the UFC fight night was in Saskatoon, I’m getting most of my information about this game in Saskatoon from out of town. Also, this game is being streamed on Oilers TV (in Oilers territory: AB/SK/NWT) for anyone in the viewing area who might be interested.
