🎶Guess who just got back today
Them wild-eyed boys that had been away 🎶
The boys are back in town!
And over a dozen players were seen on the ice at Rogers Place this week, TSN 1260’s Tom Gazzola reported.
Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl, Darnell Nurse, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Zach Hyman, Jesse Puljujarvi, Zack Kassian, Kris Russell, Evan Bouchard, Phillip Broberg, Devin Shore and Kyle Turris were all on the ice. The 13th player out there was UFA Tyler Ennis.

It marks one of the first time players have hit the ice together in Edmonton since a disappointing first-round exit at the hands of the Winnipeg Jets.
All in all, it means that we’re one day closer to watching hockey again and I’m very here for that.
