Joey Moss Cup - Team Blue 5 Team White 4

Team Blue scored three goals in the third to defeat Team White and win the annual Joey Moss Cup 5-3, in front of many starved Edmonton hockey fans. Goal scorers:

Team Blue  - Magnus Paajarvi, Philippe Cornet, Ryan Keller, Lennart Petrell and Antti Tyrvainen (en)

Team White - Jeff PetryTeemu Hartikainen, Tanner House

In all honesty, not much to take away from the scrimmage but a few things that stood out:
  1. Jordan Eberle is an absolute joy to watch on a breakaway and his hands are unreal.
  2. It really sucks that Hartikainen has very little chance to make this roster out of camp.I can not wait for this kid to be here full time and the more I see him play, the more I believe that he'll be able to score at this level. His has soft hands in tight...not a skill that many players possess.
  3. Ryan Nugent - Hopkins did pull over a sweater that had number 93 on his back
  4. Theo Peckham  has ditched number 49 in favour of 24
  5. Could be very difficult to keep Jeff Petry off the opening night roster...especially if Ryan Whitney's minutes, as has been hinted at, are going to be reduced to start the season.
  6. Classy move by Oiler fans to make Ryan Smyth feel like it was old times, nearly every time he came over the boards. Smyth will have a major impact in the room with this group while still being productive out on the ice.
