Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Joe Pelletier of Greatest Hockey Legends,
Colorado will retire Peter Forsberg’s #21 tonight as the Avalanche open their season against the Detroit Red Wings.
When mostly healthy he became a regular 90+ point guy, but health was not a friend to Mr. Forsberg. Few players paid the physical price that Forsberg has. His thick doctor’s file includes a ruptured spleen, serious groin and abdomen pulls, a bad shoulder, and nagging ankle surgeries that over time made it basically impossible for him to skate.
Despite playing in pain for most of a decade Forsberg never backed down as hockey’s ultimate warrior.
