The five Newfoundlanders who played in the National Hockey League in 2009-10 gathered for a rare photo opportunity last week at The Keg restaurant in St. John’s while Dan Cleary was home for his hockey school in Harbour Grace.

    Looking forward to another great season. It would be wonderful if all of you guys could score 50 goals this season. I am a die hard Canadian fan, kind of leaning towards Boston the past few years. I want to see Michel Ryder scoring more goals and keep digging behind the net. Good luck Guys!!
