AUDIO: TFP Live guest spot with update on Kopitar’s health

On Saturday afternoon I joined David Pagnotta and Dennis Bernstein for another guest spot on The Fourth Period Live – a weekly show on NHL Network Radio (XM 92 / Sirius 207). Because not everybody has satellite radio, we thought it best to share the audio here.

In the segment I provide a health update on Anze Kopitar, plus we talk Kyle Clifford signing in the ECHL and a few of the issues surrounding the CBA talks that aren’t being discussed by most of the media.

If you weren’t connected to the hockey headlines over the holiday weekend, we brought you the exclusive story of how Kopitar helped Mora (the team he’s currently playing with) sign Anaheim Ducks forward Bobby Ryan. Then, during a road game on Thursday, Kopitar was removed from the action after the first period and sent back home. Take a listen to what really happened and what’s next, with updates passed along directly from Kopitar himself – all the way from Sweden…

[UPDATE: 11/27/2012 9am – Just received a message from Kopitar, “Feeling good, gonna be ready for tomorrow!” …so, he’s healthy and will play in Bobby Ryan’s Mora debut.]
