Bubbly Girard Enjoying Life After Hockey

from Kevin Dupont of the Boston Globe:

Philippe Sauve, keeping the backup goalie spot warm in the Hub of Hockey while Hannu Toivonen shapes up his game in Providence, grew up outside of Montreal and became close pals with Jonathan Girard, the former Bruins defenseman forced to retire early last season following a severe auto accident in the summer of 2003.
“We’re the same age [26], and over the years we played against each other, and on some of the same teams, too, especially over the summer,” said Sauve, whose father, Bob, the former NHL goalie, is a longtime agent who also represented Girard.

“From what I understand, he’s opening a spa—with massages, European baths, that sort of stuff—back in Joliette,” said Sauve. “There are a few in the area now, and they’re doing very well, from what I understand, so that should be good for him.
“Most of all, he feels good, and he’s OK.”
