Dater’s Daily: MacDermid Starts Skating (Video)



Kurtis MacDermid

I am sitting here waiting for my flight to St. Louis to cover the Blues game and could not be any more excited. This will be my first road trip to cover the team and I cannot wait to get it started. I have some news from the rink for you all. More help is on the way. As the injuries piled up and seemed never ending, there is now an end in site. Artturi Lehkonen is traveling with the team and will play in today’s game. While back in Denver, Evan Rodrigues is skating in a regular sweater. The latest to make an appearance is Kurtis MacDermid as he finally hit the ice in a non contact sweater. He was injured in the game against the Hurricanes on November 12th. I have that so more in our daily!
