Traverse City Tournament kicks off today!

The Traverse City Tournament kicks off today with practices in the morning and games in the afternoon. Below is a detailed schedule of Columbus' games:

Friday, Sept 7th
3 p.m. Columbus vs. St. Louis

Saturday, Sept. 8
3 p.m. Minnesota vs. Columbus

2:30 p.m. Dallas vs. Columbus

Full schedule can be found here ->

Rosters for all 7 teams, standings and past results can be found here ->

As I've mentioned before on this blog Columbus has won this tournament the past two years and with the likes of Russell, Brassard, Pineault (pictured above right) and Voracek playing this year they stand a good chance to three-peat. Its also a great opportunity for new players in the system like Sestito, Dorsett, Plekhanov (his first time in NA since being drafted in '04) among many others to make impressions on the CBJ brass. Both GM Scott Howson and coach Ken Hitchcock will be attending this event.

There are no TV or radio feeds that I am aware of but I will post all Columbus results as they become available.

Anyone else excited about some actual games to comment on -- the NHL season is right around the corner!
