Osgood In For The Long Haul

Newsflash for The Osgood Puck Bunny Nation: Deep breath girls, he plans on sticking around for a while.  Via the Vernon Morning Star.

Chris Osgood wants to play five more years in the NHL. He would be 40. Shouldn’t be a problem considering Chris Chelios will be 46 and Dominik Hasek 43 next January. Age is not considered a weakness with the Detroit Red Wings.

To help him reach that pinnacle, Osgood takes care of his body year-round. He, and other pro hockey players who call Vernon home in the off-season, hire a personal trainer and get pushed hard enough to give them an edge going into training camp.

“I’m finding the older you get, the more you have to train to stay in shape and to stay quick,” said Osgood, moments after a dryland session with Rhonda Catt.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
