The Malik Report

TSN’s Mark Masters is following Team Canada and Team Russia’s potential World Junior Championship teams as they play a four-game series commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Summit Series (in lieu of annual World Junior Evaluation camps). The first two games of the “Canada-Russia Challenge” were played in Yaroslavl, Russia, and the second pair start tonight in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and as such, as noted by RedWingsFeed (blogger under the weather = I miss some stuff), Masters spoke to a very important person who happens to be traveling with the Canadian team, which happens to include Red Wings prospect Xavier Ouellet:

Will never forget Byron McCrimmon telling me the story of how a woman found Brad’s whistle at the crash site & then gave it him last week— Mark Masters (@markhmasters) August 13, 2012

@austinl_nhl Just an incredible story. Byron handed me the whistle in the interview ... tough moment.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
