It's a tournament that is getting a bit more attention in North America, due in part to the fact that so many Canadians and Americans make a living out of playing hockey in Europe.
The Spengler Cup is underway and continues until December 31st. Team Canada is in the mix with four other European Club teams with all the Canadian games on Rogers Sportsnet . Paul Romanuk is handling the play by play and keeping a blog on the tournament.
