Facing Travel Issues

from Corey Masisak of CSNWashington,

Hockey players traveling back and forth from their homes in Europe at the beginning and end of every season can be taken for granted, but it is safe to assume Tomas Fleischmann won’t be doing so again.

Fleischmann developed a blood clot in his leg after the 2008-09 season came to a close, and his transatlantic flight home played a large role. The clot restricted his ability to prepare for last season and he missed the first 11 games of the campaign.

When last season concluded, Fleischmann altered his travel plans to ensure no such problems would occur, and he intends on sticking to his new routine.

“I started traveling in business class,” Fleischmann said. “I’ve changed so it is more leg room and you can stretch out there. It is better for my health.”
