12/13/17 Face Off Hockey Show

Did you know the NHL 100 Game was this weekend?? Neither did we. However, we did learn some things from the NHL's Board of Governor's meeting, like how the NHL is coming up with technology not yet invented yet for their new player tracking system. We'll talk injuries, the sale of the Carolina Hurricanes, the arena plan for the New York Islanders, as well as talk with Spector's Hockey's Lyle Richardson talking about how arenas are funded and why Eric Francis' piece in the Calgary Sun about the Flames is just super absurd.

They'll talk about their weekend with UND Hockey and seeing Christopher Titus. Follow the show on Twitter: @SdrstromBubble
