I don’t do a lot of hockey posts here at IF. It’s not that I don’t enjoy the sport. I do. It’s not in my primary rotation, but I’m certainly a fan of postseason hockey and I would like to see the NHL get a better television deal. One of the few posts I did covering the NHL last season was about Richard Zednik and his horrible throat-slashing accident. As you well know, Zednik survived his ordeal and has continued his hockey career and last night, he did a great job reminding everybody he can still play a sport that almost took his life by scoring a “Play of the Year” worthy goal against the New York Islanders.
If you don’t believe me, take it from someone who watches more hockey in a week than I do an entire season.
