Weren't there pre-season games played in Vancouver and Montreal 2 years ago (when Kleiza tore it up and Reggie pulled down board after board after board)? I don't think this report is accurate, because it's not the first ever preseason game in Canada...
They are referring to the Detroit vs. Minnesota game. First game in Canada not involving a Canadian team.
I was more speaking to the quote in the article, where they speak of making it an initiative to grow the game in Canada. Nice to hear.
