That’s good to see.

Maybe he should hold a press conference about it.

Why wouldn’t it be? I thought that injured players qualified.

hockey1919, I think the player has to have played 40 regular season games or a game in the finals to automatically qualify…something like that.

Today, players appearing in 41 regular-season games or one Stanley Cup Final game for the championship team have their names engraved on the Cup. The NHL makes exceptions for players who do not meet the standard because of injury or other extenuating circumstances.
