There is some news on David Aebischer

Considering he has played 214 NHL games and once posted a 2.09 goals against average, 32 wins and a .924 save percentage with Colorado, he’s not a bad guy to have in camp, pushing incumbent goaltenders Ondrej Pavelec and Chris Mason.

"My expectations are that I do well on the ice and I end up playing somewhere in North America," Aebischer said. "I sure wouldn’t say no to playing for the Jets. I know it’s not going to happen like ‘Click’ and I’m in the NHL, but I’m here to work for it and I’m ready for the minors perhaps."

An update on John-Micheal Liles

"I thought a barricade broke or something," Liles said after his debut in blue and white Saturday at the MasterCard Centre.

"Everybody said ‘That’s Toronto.’ It’s a far cry from growing up playing hockey in Indiana, but if that’s how it is, I’ll get used to it."

Russ Courtnall is not only stepping up into Wade Belak's Battle of the Blades spot, he will also be skating to try and raise money for Wade's chosen charity.

Courtnall, who was eliminated early from the 2010 competition, will skate for Belak’s chosen charity, Tourette’s Syndrome Neurodevelopmental Clinic at the Toronto Western Hospital. Each pair is skating for a $100,000 donation to the charity of their choice.
