Shane Doan Recalls His Case Of Rocky Mountain Fever

from Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic,

On Dec. 3, the Coyotes opened a three-game road trip in Edmonton against the Oilers with Doan contributing a goal and assist to the 6-2 win. But he felt miserable. Actually, the flu-like symptoms he was coping with – chills alternating with sweats and a nagging headache – led to a sleepless night before the game.

But Doan persevered and not only did he face the Oilers, he played the following night in Calgary even though he wasn't feeling any better.

The Coyotes left for Vancouver following the 4-1 loss to the Flames and told Doan to rest on the off-day. He remained in his hotel room, curled up on the bed while wearing a trench coat, scarf, knit hat and gloves. Aside from now being hot and cold at the same time, the achiness spread to his knees, elbows and shoulders.

"When the blood would move, it would hurt," Doan said. "So I would just stay in one position, and I was shaking."
