Y’all ready for some 3-on-3 exhibition MAYHEM?!

Ok, to be honest, the mini-tournament among the divisions is better for me than the two-team defense-never exhibitions of years past because, despite it being 3-on-3, it’s actually closer to real hockey than those older 5v5 games.

The four divisions will whittle down to two and then those winners will battle for a win to split $1M between all the players to give enough motivation to win. Detroit will be repped by Mike Green on the Atlantic squad, which is the only team that only has two defensemen on their roster. However, in a small tourney like this, having Carey Price and Andrei Vasilevskiy backstopping you can make a big difference.

Full rosters here.

It’s an open thread for today’s fun. Enjoy!
