Hey Wolves Fans...Wish this blog was coming with a update on our travel in the second round. As I'm sure many of you are, the entire organization is disappointed to be finished with our year so early.
We thought we had the right team to go far into playoffs, but unfortunately we fell short in the final game of the series. Sometimes in playoffs, a little bounce can be the difference in the series. I want to thank all of you for your loyal support throughout the entire season! We definitely have the best fans in the league.
I also want to thank those of you that have shown concern over Twitter regarding my injury in the final game of the year. For those who don't know, I was hit in the head with a slap shot in the second overtime period of Game 5. The puck actually hit me in the ear and fortunately my eardrum was not damaged. Right now my ear is cut, swollen, and bruised, but I expect to be fully recovered in a couple of weeks.
At the end of the hockey year, most players take no longer than a week to tie off loose ends and pack up their stuff before leaving town. It's always a strange feeling at the end of a season, because the same group of people that you have spent every day with over the past nine months is suddenly gone. I guess it's just a part of a hockey player’s life.
This year will actually be a nice change because there are a few players, including myself, that are hanging out for awhile. It will be fun to have a chance to further explore the great city of Chicago, take in a few ballgames, eat at some unique spots, etc. I wish all of you a safe and happy summer!
