His organizational mind, and connections around the league would prove a huge asset to the Oilers farm team almost immediately.

My Conversion to the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL)

In case you missed it, the NHL is still in the midst of their lockout – a long, drawn out, rapidly becoming ridiculously crazy, losing fans lockout. However, this could well be changing soon, but for now we are still without NHL hockey. Luckily I…
