[Thursday's FTB] Hey, It's Joffrey Lupul

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Apparently, Joffrey Lupul has overcome all those bureaucratic barriers to playing hockey in the KHL that Cam Charron brought up and is now playing for the worst team in the league. He should be more or less used to that feeling.


It's good to hear that he's found some ice with real competition, and Steve Dangle and Andrey Osadchenko have some highlights for you.
