Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,
Officially, it’s the Edmonton Oilers vs. the Chicago Blackhawks on Nov. 24 on Hockey Night in Canada.
But really it’s Tickets for Troops night, a first for the National Hockey League. The Oilers hope the entire building will be full of what they call their “hometown heroes.”
The Oilers hope to fill Rexall Place with armed forces personnel and their families stationed at CFB Edmonton by asking their season ticket customers to turn back their ducats for that game, in appreciation of the soldiers’ efforts.
