Looking through Google I found a recent interview with Philippe Dupuis. Dupuis says that the organization made him aware that they wanted to give more ice time to the young guys, and that my place was no longer here. The article goes on to say that he had offers from the Sharks, Predators and the St-Louis Blues.
"La direction m’a fait comprendre qu’elle voulait donner plus de temps de glace aux jeunes et que ma place n’était plus ici", souligne Dupuis.
Cameron Gaunce will be taking part in a charity Hockey Night tomorrow night, this one in Stouffville. Tickets are still available. It's about an hour away from Toronto.
NHLers on the rosters are Phoenix Coyotes Raffi Torres and Ethan Werek, Stephen Weiss of the Florida Panthers, Cameron Gaunce of the Colorado Avalanche and Mike Zigomanis of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The event, hosted by Oak Ridges-Markham MP Paul Calandra is a fundraiser for Stouffville’s new Royal Canadian Legion and Markham Stouffville Hospital.
Gaunce isn't the only one doing good, Greg Mauldin is playing the role of Guest Coach.
Mauldin, who is under contract with the NHL’s Colorado Avalanche, agreed.
"I played in this program – it’s really rewarding to give back. [The coaches] have been through this – we can relate to the kids and what they are going through; sometimes that’s the best way to learn – from someone who has been through it," he said.
Today's question: What is the first CD/ cassette/ 8 track/ record/ whatever-it-was-when-you-bought-one that you owned? That is, what was the first one you purchased for yourself?
