His eye injury (from Brad McCrimmon's stick) was awful.
I'd suggest they retire Lee Fogolin's number to begin next season and maybe honor guys like Stan Weir and Rusty Patenaude the way they're doing Callighen tonight.
No doubt though, this is a first class move.
Correction. Brett Callighen will be honored on Tuesday prior to the game against the Blues. I just received the e-mail from the Oilers. The e-mail also mentioned that someone will be honoured prior to all home games on Tuesdays.
"He just ate up Robyn Regehr for dinner, a spectacular play by Hemsky, and Robyn Regehr has got doo doo all over his face"
- Rod Phillips call on Hemsky's goal vs the Flames
