Working for CBC Sports and Hockey Night in Canada has been a dream of mine ever since I was a kid. In October of the 2011-12 NHL season, this dream became a reality.
My ticket into “the ceebs” was making highlight packs. I did that all throughout last season, and once the players and owners stopped bickering, I continued to do it this season.
I’ve had some people watch my highlight packs and ask questions like, “Why didn’t you put this in there?” “Why didn’t you mention this?” “Why did you put that in, but not this?” Those are all fair questions, because whether you agree with the editing decisions I make or not, there is a method to my madness.
Here is a little look at how I make highlight packs. For those of you reading this on the Leafs, Flames, or Oilers Nation websites, I know your team didn't play last night, but they're obviously regulars on Hockey Night in Canada, so you may like this, too.

After the jump, Andrey Osadchenko conducts a feature interview with Nail Yakupov - and it's well worth reading. Yakupov talks about his adjustment to the NHL, the things that matter to him at this level, why he likes playing in Edmonton, and his opinion of the Oilers' coaching staff. JW.

There's not an Oiler fan alive who isn't wishing the best for Ryan Whitney. It was heartening to see him play a solid game and score a goal last night for the blue and orange. Is this a preview of coming attractions?
