Penner claiming ‘pancake power’ and other notes from trip

Dustin Penner and pancakegate is turning into one of the longest running story lines of the season. Of course, everybody knows about the open letter he wrote here on MayorsManor (if you don’t, where have you been?). And as the Kings made their way through Western Canada on their most recent road trip, it was a hot topic among fans, the media…and even among the home teams.

While he says he didn’t hear the crowd chanting ‘panckaes’ at him every time he was on the ice in Edmonton, he did come home with a pre-game gift.

There was a report about an hour before the game that night that Penner was seen leaving the Oilers dressing room with a bottle of maple syrup – something thought to be a gift from one of his old teammates. However, Penner set the record straight for us…

“It was from Joey Moss (longtime Oilers dressing room attendant). He’s very thoughtful. I did a lot for him when I was there and I think it was just his way of trying to repay what I did for him.”

We’ve also received many tweets lately, with people wanting to know if he’s had any more pancakes since the ‘incident’ a few weeks ago.

“Yes, I had pancakes the day we played the Canucks,” Penner said. “And then I had eight hits that night. So…I think it was pancake power.”

Well, those eight hits were a career high.  So, yes, pancake power!

By the way, if you missed the post a few days ago – expect a major announcement early next week with all the details on the Pancakes with Penner event. Final logistics are being assembled and then the date, time and ticket information will all be revealed shortly. All of the money raised is expected to be donated to the Kings Care Foundation.
