Goalie Announcements (Sep 11)

Only one game going on tonight and it will be after the draft goes today and it is the return contest between Team Europe and Team North America, this one will be going at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

The European squad is looking to bounce back from a 4-0 drubbing on Thursday night and they will do so with Thomas Greiss in net for them tonight.  At the other end of the ice, John Gibson will make his first start for the 23 & under team.

Greiss now has an opening to try and jump into the starting role against Team USA on Saturday afternoon after Jaroslav Halak took the loss during the week.  Gibson, on the other hand, will try and better Matt Murray's shutout somehow, as he tries to vie for the job of number one as well.

This is the only game on the schedule and we'll get to see how are newly-drafted players look here shortly.  This is where it really starts to get exciting.
