CSKA's website posted a photo gallery from the event, a 13:27 YouTube clip (in Russian) of the Q and A Datsyuk, Bryzgalov and CSKA Moscow GM Sergei Fedorov held with the Russian media, and both a formal press release and a, "Thank you, sponsors" quip from Fedorov. CSKA also announced that Datsyuk will make his 2012-2013 season debut on Monday against Avangard Omsk. Sovetsky Sport's Pavel Lysenkov posted several pictures from the event via Twitter...

The Red Wings' locked-out players will take part in their first informal practice in Troy today, and many of you will be skating in their place at Joe Louis Arena over the next three days, which seems strange...But this lockout has been nothing if not full of "weirdness."
