Illegal Curve Hockey will be your source for the latest news emanating from what should be a busy end of the week in NHL circles. Starting tomorrow (Thursday), with the rumoured (but expected) release of the NHL schedule, which we will cover and analyze just as soon as it is released. Who will be the first opponent for the Winnipeg NHL franchise? Hopefully we will find out for certain sometime tomorrow, so we can officially begin circling dates on our calendars.
Later on Thursday night, Ezra (Twitter: ICEzra), Remis (Twitter: mremis), and Illegal Curve’s Scouting Correspondent Kyle Kosior (Twitter: ICkylek), will arrive in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area where they will be anchoring our extensive coverage of the NHL Entry Draft Weekend. Be sure to stay with IllegalCurve.com and to follow IllegalCurve on Twitter, as the IC team in St. Paul will be covering the NHL entry draft in its entirety all weekend long. As soon as news breaks in St. Paul, and/or interviews are recorded with draft picks, and other movers and shakers from the NHL, they will be available in their entirety on IllegalCurve.com.
A closer look at the week ahead after the jump.
Back in Winnipeg, Richard and Drew (Twitter: ICdrew), will be manning the offices of Illegal Curve Hockey, including a special edition of The Illegal Curve Hockey Show, Friday afternoon from 4PM – 630 PM on Sports Radio 1290.
