Ohlund Wants A Big Part In The Lightning Plans

from Erik Erlenssson of the Tampa Tribune,

Ohlund said that while he looked like a wounded warrior for good portions of last year, he played without limitations.

“I had a few issues, but it wasn’t something big and when I stepped on the ice it never bothered me, it probably took more toll on the trainers than me,” Ohlund said.

The summer didn’t bring an end to the ailments, however, as Ohlund had a minor procedure done to repair some damage to the articular cartilage on his right knee that had him walking around with a brace for a short time.

He downplayed the procedure just as he refuses to use those issues as any kind of an excuse for how his season unfolded.

“I wasn’t … I just had a bad year last year and obviously didn’t play the way I wanted to, but I have no excuses,” he said. “I’ve been around long enough to know that when you have a bad year, you walk around grumpy for a couple of weeks after the season and then you move on.

“I feel great now, I’m excited to be back here and I want to be a big part of getting this team back on the right path again.”
