Stanley Cup champ Carl Hagelin played through broken fibula

As anyone who's reading this knows, everybody's favorite Swedish Michigan Hockey alum Carl Hagelin won a second consecutive Stanley Cup with this year's Penguins (and scored the game 6 empty-netter to seal the deal).  That was after missing a number of playoff games with a "lower body injury", as well as being considered a "healthy" scratch in games 1 and 2 of the finals.  He was then added to the lineup for game 3 in place of the injured Nick Bonino and lasted the rest of the series.

What wasn't common knowledge until now was the nature of that LBI:

Hagelin: "I broke my fibula against Winnipeg on the road and it didn't really heal... I'm not getting surgery."

— Pittsburgh Penguins (@penguins) June 15, 2017

That happened on March 8, a couple months before the playoffs even began, meaning Hagelin played through a pretty tough injury.  I realize hockey players are often known for gutting out the playoffs with injuries like this, but since Carl's one of our guys, I think he deserves some recognition for overcoming this break and contributing to a second straight title.  Congrats to yet another Wolverine with his name on the Cup!

Carl just signed with Anaheim for 4 years and $16 million. Congrats to our favorite Swede.

I did like seeing him in the Rangers unis though. Much better looking than Anaheim's brown-silver-orange disaster.

UM Hockey Jersey Customization?

UM Hockey Jersey Customization?

I have a maize UM hockey jersey in the diagonal "Michigan" style.  Is there somewhere I can get it customized with a name AND number or even a place to get a number on it?


I want to get Hagelin's name and number on it.  I thought there was a hockey shop in AA that did that but I think it closed down?  I would appreciate any insight.  


Thanks! Go Blue!

Unsurprisingly, many Red Wings are included on the roster.   Hank Z will wear the "C" as team captain.

Everyone's favorite Swede just had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder, now that the Rangers' season is over, as did his teammate Ryan Callahan. Carl played in all 48 games for them this year plus the playoffs, good for him! Hope he has a fast and perfect recovery! Does anyone know what the recovery time is for a surgery like this? Sorry, I'm not an mgodoctor.

Also, Carl Hagelin is in the running for NHL 14 cover! Be sure to vote for him. Rangers fans + Michigan fans = unstoppable.

Thanks to his very solid first season in the NHL, Carl Hagelin was selected as part of a handful of rookies to take part in the Skills competition at the All-Star Game tonight in Ottawa.


In this otherwise boring video: , you can see Alfredsson and Lundqvist picking which players take part in which event, and Hagelin is the first name on the board for the fastest skater, which I thought was very indicative of the respect his veteran peers and countrymen have for his speed (I think they have to pick a rookie for each event but still, high praise).


Watch tonight, starting at 7 ET, to see if Carl wins and/or beats the record.
