Oilers Have Potential Issue for 2021 Seattle Expansion Draft

Oilers Have Potential Issue for 2021 Seattle Expansion Draft

Baggedmilk on #theLOCKERROOM: Aliens, hub cities, and the NHL playoffs

We’re midway through the week and that means your ol’ pal Baggedmilk jumped on the air with the boys at The Locker Room to talk about what’s going on in the NHL, life, and the world of sports. To start off this week’s appearance, we jumped into The Locker Room topic of the day which revolved around whether or not I would tell anyone about an alien experience if I ever had one.
