Steve Ott’s Game

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

Today, 795 regular season games later and four months shy of his 34th birthday, Ott is at the other end of a hockey career. Coming off a complex hamstring tear this season — called a hamstring avulsion — and battling colitis, he made his way back into the lineup in Game 3 of this series.

Like a dog who gets kidnapped, then walks through three states to find his family home, Ott entered this series with a sharp elbow aimed at Brent Seabrook, followed soon after by a headlock and face wash session with Jonathan Toews. Immediately upon his arrival, the Blackhawks were sidetracked, engaged in Otter’s world.

“I don’t know,” Ott began. “I thought (Toews) was trying to get me off my game. I thought he had me in a headlock. You (media) guys have to watch the video a little closer.”

There is so much more to Steve Ott than you would ever think. And yes, to all the haters, he is a far, far smarter person than you would ever give him credit for.
