Avalanche Burgundy/White Game - 2008/09 Edition

The Colorado Avalanche's annual Burgundy/White game happens tonight at the Air Force Academy. The official game roster is up and I'm baffled that on a roster of 42 players not one of them wears #7. And don't worry, Marek Svatos, Paul Stastny and Wojtek Wolski are being held out for precautionary reasons only. They'll be good to go once the season starts. (*knocks wood*)

Obviously I won't be attending but would love to hear from anyone who did. And if you're wavering on whether to go or not, remember that the event raises funds to benefit military families and the Colorado Avalanche Youth Hockey program.

So not only do you get to catch some hockey, but you get to benefit others - two of the greatest things in the world bundled into one entertaining package.

Me? I'll be watching the Leafs/Sabres preseason game on Sportsnet. I'm not happy about it but a hungry dog will eat whatever meat you put in front of him, right?
