Capilano Rehab Centre Injury Report – December 8, 2015

Throw a couple more injuries onto the pile this week, surprise, surprise. I don’t even remember what it’s like to have a healthy team anymore – it hasn’t happened all season. Good on the Oilers for hanging in there with all their injuries, though. There are a lot of people who would have given up as…


GDB -2.0: Canucks-lite Visit Rexall
