After many days of finding really no news to report, it looks like I have finally found some as August is drawing to a close.
- After Marc Staal‘s horrific eye injury back in March, the All-Star defenseman is now declaring himself 100% healthy. Although his eye sight may never be the same again. “The eye is still not normal, but I feel back to normal,” Staal told NHL.com Tuesday at Canada Olympic orientation camp. “I don’t see myself having any issues once camp starts. It’ll be good to get into camp to get that timing and feeling back, but I’m excited for that to get that started, get that rolling.” After Staal’s injury, he missed the remainder of the regular season and played only once against the Washington Capitals in the playoffs. This is good news for the Rangers. Staal is one of the key pieces to their defensive core and many fans think that he is one of the best in the business.
- Yesterday, Team USA revealed their jerseys for the 2014 Olympics and well, it drew some critical reviews. The jersey features a USA badge smack in the middle, with stars on the shoulders. If you want to see them for yourself, check out this article in the LA Times.
