Alumni game

So far, they are playing

And right now, there are no plans to postpone or cancel either game. The Komets Legends are getting dressed right now. Looked like Doug Teskey was going to play for Fort Wayne.

Talked to the referees from the college game that was played earlier today (BG 2, RM 2). They said the ice was quite pebblely but everyone made the best of it. Here's a fantastic question no one has asked yet: How are the pro players going to be able to play in this using visors? 

Please be careful

They are playing the college game in Toledo and the puck seems to be moving ok, but there are lots of reports of ice-covered roads and even roads being closed because of accidents. Remember, slow and steady wins the race if you are driving over.
