Only two weeks from Tuesday until prestigious members of the Maple Leafs and Red Wings alumni take to the ice for a pair of games on Dec. 31 as part of the NHL’s Winter Classic festivities.
Hope their is plenty of oxygen on the respective benches at Detroit’s Comerica Park. Some of these wheezing guys are going to need it.
Actually, ask most of the 38,000 fans who are going to pack the home of the Detroit Tigers that day and they’ll likely tell you it will be pretty cool to see names like Yzerman, Coffey, Sittler, Gilmour, Clark and Sundin back on the ice.
Here is a look at the respective rosters for the two alumni games.
Dan Daoust, Mark Osborne, Bill Derlago, Stew Gavin, Pat Boutette, Rob Pearson, Claude Loiselle, Brad May, Shayne Corson, Tom Fergus, Mike Krushelnsyki, Dave McLlwain, Mike Johnson, Todd Warriner, Dave Reid, Nikolai Borschevsky, Lou Franceschetti.
