If You’re Going Through Hell - Bryce Salvador, The Players Tribune
As a former competitive, and currently less so, hockey player, I truly love when players publish through The Player Tribune. It gives ones self perspective, it shows us that these people are still humans, no matter what level we elevate them to. So to hear about Bryce and the injury and struggle he went through just to play again, let alone the incredible playoff performance he had that year, should give every person hope for the future no matter the endeavor. He also notes some really interesting software capabilities that have come about to lessen the strain on your eyes (as I write this at night... not utilizing any of what I’m talking about). I will be checking out some of his advice in the very near future.
News from the hockey world:
Team USA following John Tortorella's lead - Nicholas J. Cotsonika, NHL.com
T.J Oshie sums it up well:
Team USA is built to go the distance. They’ve got every aspect of the game covered. There is skill, there is size, there is speed, there is physical play, there is scoring. Even the grinder type players are no slouches. 10 of the 13 forwards had 21+ goals last season. I’m excited for Team USA.

Ovechkin critical of NHL playoff format - TSN.ca
I personally share Ovi’s feelings about the structuring of the playoff bracket. It didn’t need to change, nor did the conference’s for that matter, but I digress. They still play the game of hockey, and I will continue to engorge myself with it.

Best of luck Stephen.
