MORE NAMES ADDED TO THE ALUMNI GAME

We already know Eric Lindros and John LeClair are playing in the Alumni Game on New Year's Eve afternoon at Citizen's Bank Park, but who will be skating with them?

The Flyers haven't released the roster yet, but organizational sources have informed me of a series of players who will take part.

This is not a complete list, but just some names that I've gleaned tonight:

Confirmed players:
Eric Lindros
John LeClair
Mark Recchi
Brian Propp
Dave Poulin
Bobby Clarke
Orest Kindrachuk
Kjell Samuelsson
Bill Barber
Reggie Leach
Chris Therien
Eric Desjardins
Derian Hatcher
Mark Laforest

Also, despite reports that Mikael Renberg will not play, there is still a chance that he'll be there, the sources indicated.

Renberg is broadcasting the World Junior Championships in Canada for Swedish television and is still trying to get a fill-in for New Year's Eve so he can attend.

As for who will play for the Rangers? That's still an unknown, but one source said the Rangers were trying to bring in as many guys from their 1994 Stanley Cup team as they can.

When I get more names I will be sure to post them here.
