As reported earlier this afternoon, Mark Scheifele is headed back to Barrie after his brief turn in the NHL. The Kitchener native had an impressive pre-season before scuffling against the grown-ups, potting one goal during his seven game vignette with declining ice time as the games progressed.

What a magnificent day in Edmonton. The sun is shining, the Oilers play the Rangers this evening and oh what's that? It's Jason Gregor's birthday. We can't imagine how old he is, but short of cutting him in half and counting his rings we will estimate that today marks the start of his 52nd year on Earth. Happy Birthday!

It's only been 13 days since our Winnipeg Jets have officially returned as a part of the NHL.
After a 5-1 home opening loss to the Montreal Canadiens, few fans could care about an 0-1 record to start the season.
Heck, half the league's teams start off that way anyways.
Then came a close 4-3 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks and their backup goalie 4-3 during their first road game.
Whatever, first road game is always the toughest - playing in front of the other team's crowd for the first time in a season, nerves probably got the better of them.
