The game began with a frightening incident when the skate of linemate Darroll Powe struck center Kyle Brodziak in the face. Blood fell and Brodziak rushed to the bench.
“It was scary,” Yeo said. “I think it shows you how much he’s respected by our whole team. As soon as it happened, there was a lot of concern. We’ve got Mikko yelling over at their bench, ‘Get the doctor, get the doctor’ as the play’s going on.”
Thankfully, Powe’s skate clipped Brodziak’s left cheek and the outside of his nose. Stitched up, Brodziak returned with two minutes left in the period and donned the long visor the Wild specially orders for Heatley.
The regular season hasn’t even started yet and already Dustin Penner has pulled off what will likely be the most successful prank of the season. Last night, as the Oilers players and staff settled into their rooms at Jasper Park Lodge, Penner was busy getting dressed up in the scary mask from the “Saw” horror movie series. He went from room to room knocking on doors and scaring his teammates when they opened up. Ethan Moreau ended up with a choke hold on him and Kyle Brodziak nearly destroyed his own computer while attempting what Penner called “the flying crane” ninja move. Penner told me “this is just the tip of the iceberg”.
Here’s the story on audio, as told by the Oilers themselves. Great stuff.
