A “Good Ride” For Mark Recchi

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

Last seen in Boston in a duck boat, hugging and kissing the Stanley Cup in June 2011, Mark Recchi has had himself a pretty good summer.

In a span of a little more than three weeks, June 17-July 11, the 49-year-old Recchi first was promoted to Pittsburgh’s director of player development, then days later learned he was named to the Hockey Hall of Fame, and finally added the role as an assistant coach with the Penguins.

Oh, and on June 11, the Penguins rubbed out the Predators, clinching their second straight Stanley Cup title.

“Yeah, it’s been a good ride,” said the ever-understated Recchi, reached recently during a vacation break in Florida. “It’s been awesome.”

The crown jewel of Recchi’s summer slamfest, of course, is the Hall recognition.
