Smyth's absence

Where was Ryan Smyth today? In Alberta, running with the Olympic torch as part of its relay through Canada. Terry Murray said Smyth sought permission for the trip a couple weeks ago, that he was happy to grant it and that Smyth would be back in L.A. tonight. I might have more information on this later today.
