Update: 7:48PM: Messier says that he DIDN’T have the shoulder surgery and that he IS playing in the alumni game.
Mess put of the shoulder surgery he was supposed to have in September because he ran in the New York Marathon and he put it off again to play in the alumni game.
I never doubted that Mess was going to play but it is nice to see it confirmed that he will. I was kind of hoping he would announce that he convinced Wayne Gretzky to play.
Original Post: Earlier today the Rangers tweeted that they had an addition to make to the Rangers Winter Classic Alumni Roster.
On MSG, Sam Rosen said that they were expecting an announcement from Marc Messier on whether he was going to be able to play in the game after undergoing shoulder surgery.
Al is going to interview Mark Messier in the first intermission and he is supposed to make a major announcement.
I wonder what it could be….
