Hopefully the rain can let up for tomorrow when the first annual Hockey & Hearts Celebrity Golf Tournament will take place in Moose Jaw (orginally planned for Rouleau).
The Hockey and Hearts Celebrity Golf tournament was established to bring together the great Hearts of the local Hockey community, along with the talented and successful celebrities that inspire us!
The tournament was designed by the Rouleau Rink Revitalization committee as a fundraiser for the Rouleau Memorial Rink . The founding celebrity, Keith Aulie, has also chosen to designate one additional charity per year to receive partial proceeds from the tournament. In this inaugural year the Mandi Schwartz Memorial Bursary will be the designated recipient.

A broader interpretation of the current rule governing head hits plus the sale and relocation of the Atlanta Thrashers to Winnipeg can both become official Tuesday at the NHL's Board of Governors meeting in midtown Manhattan.
While considered a formality at this point, the Board of Governors still has to give its stamp of approval for the Thrashers sale to True North Sports and Entertainment and relocation to Winnipeg beginning with the 2011-12 season. The transfer of ownership from Atlanta Spirit to True North Sports and Entertainment requires a 75 percent approval from the Board while relocation needs a majority approval.
True North Sports and Entertainment is purchasing the franchise for a reported $170 million, including a $60 million relocation fee.
If approved, the still unnamed Winnipeg franchise will play in the Southeast Division for one more season with the expectation it will be moved into the Western Conference starting with the 2012-13 season.
Have you heard Bob McKenzie ranked our own Joel Edmundson #47 in his mock draft. Although it never works like this, the team picking 47th is the Florida Panthers in a trade from Montreal. St. Louis has the 46th pick and Chicago the 48th.... Where will he be drafted?
Check it out, the video board is being assembled in the Multiplex.... http://www.pbase.com/impalass/moose_jaw_multiplex&page=60
Have a good one!
