Welcome to Day 3 without hockey. We’ve made it this far, and we get to see Nathan MacKinnon play on Saturday. Until then, there are a few things to keep busy with.
All-Star “Weekend” starts today with Fan Fest and the Alumni Game.
Bernie will join fellow team mascots in the Mascot Showdown when the Central Division takes on the Metropolitan Division representatives in relay races at 7 p.m. Bernie will also participate in a talent show against the Atlantic Division, play ice hockey with all of the mascots, and he will joust and dance on behalf of the Western Conference as they take on the Eastern Conference mascots this weekend.
Media availability is at 5 p.m. today, so expect to hear from MacKinnon this evening.
Matt Calvert is Weird
In case you needed to hear it, here is an 18 second video of Matt Calvert making noise. He joined some PeeWee players for practice recently and wore a microphone. Instead of a nice video of him cheering on the skaters, the Avs social media released this gem. Enjoy!
Gritty Gets in Trouble
The Philadelphia Police are investigating an alleged incident of Gritty punching someone in the back at a season-ticket holder event where a man and his son were getting their photo taken with the mascot. The Philadelphia Inquirer has more.
