Good morning, Edmonton

Welcome to the National Hockey League’s northernmost outpost. Edmonton, Alberta is at 53°34′N latitude, placing it roughly at the same distance from the equator as Manchester, England and Hamburg, Germany. It’s a grey morning in Alberta’s capital, and the team is scheduled to hit the ice at Rexall Place at 10:00 am. Lots more to come from the arena.
