Ronning and Courtnall in Abbotsford Heat Jerseys?

Not making a big deal out of it, but does anyone else think there's something wrong about Ronning and Courtnall wearing Abbotsford Heat jerseys in a game where the Heat are playing the Canucks' AHL affiliate?

On another note, Kassian's got some skillz. If he can bring the type of confidence he has displayed in the AHL to the NHL...

I don't see it as a big deal. Courts and Cliffy were specials guest for the ceremonial face off, so I don't see it as a biggy for them to wear the home team jersey (Abbotsford Heat). They were probably there to do a favour for Ryan Walters and promote the game with the hype of having Vancouver's farm team as the visiting opposition.

I suppose. Maybe years down the line the Canucks' farm team can invite Iginla as a special guest, have him wear the Canucks' farm team's jersey, and have Iginla drop the ceremonial face off against the Flames' affiliate. I'm vengeful I know. :lol:

Liking what I'm seeing from Kassian this year on highlights.

That is a heck of a back hand by Kassian.

Are we seeing Bert version 2.0 in the making?
