Well, that was fast. Just as the pre-game is posted, we learn that Jakub Kindl, has in fact been recalled. Can I patent the nickname “Amazon” for him or what?
Kindl, pictured above on his ninth birthday, will play in tomorrow’s Oilers game if Brian Rafalski’s back continues to be all geriatric-like.
“We’ll think about it a little more and see how the game’s going and the rhythm we get in,” Babcock said. “Our forwards got to do a real good job tonight to protect our D. Kindl’s a real good player, moves the puck real well. He’ll play on our first power play tonight because he has that kind of ability.”
