SHELDON SOURAY – Souray’s first season in Edmonton was dulled by a serious shoulder injury. The talented defenseman has returned this season with a vengeance – scoring five goals with seven assists in his first 14 games to already eclipse last season’s totals. The Oilers franchise is celebrating their 30th anniversary this season, and commemorating the event with throwback jerseys from the days of Gretzky, Fuhr and Messier.
SIDNEY CROSBY 3 – 71,127 hockey fans braved the cold and a few snow flurries at the 2008 NHL Winter Classic – the first NHL game ever played outdoors in the United States. Buffalo and Pittsburgh remained deadlocked at one as overtime expired – setting the stage for a heart-stopping shootout in front of a massive international television audience. With the game on the line, Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby squeezed a shot past Buffalo’s Ryan Miller, earning a 2-1 shootout victory in one of the most memorable games in recent NHL history.
ROBERTO LUONGO 3 – Vancouver honored their standout goalie this off-season, by making him their team captain. Goaltenders are prohibited from wearing the captain’s “C” on their jerseys, so Luongo put it on his mask (check out the chin). With five shutouts in his first 15 games, Captain Luongo is at the top of his game.
ALEX TANGUAY – Montreal sent a first, second, and fifth-round pick to Calgary in exchange for Tanguay this off-season, but Alex didn’t wait long to pay dividends. With seven goals and 15 points in his first 13 games, Tanguay is helping lead the Canadiens towards the playoff in their Centennial season.
