Read: Why Kevin Lowe Isn’t Playing In The Alumni Game

In the Edmonton Journal, Jim Matheson writes that former Rangers defenseman Kevin Lowe isn’t playing in the alumni game because of arthritis in his hip and because he wants to attend the World Junior Championships which are taking place in Edmonton.

The Rangers released their roster for the alumni game on Friday.

Lowe is the president of the Edmonton Oilers.

Larry Brooks has more on Wayne Gretzky not playing in the game at the NY Post.
