Tyler Sloan Gets His Shot

from Allan Maki of the Globe and Mail,

The question was put to Tyler Sloan as he sat in the far corner of the Washington Capitals dressing room, a few stalls to the right of Sergei Fedorov, Alexander Semin and hockey’s most dynamic force, Alexander Ovechkin: If someone made a movie out of your career, what would they call it?

Sloan smiled as he undid his skates. Cinderella Man, he replied.

Indeed, his saga is the feel-good story of this early NHL season.

It’s the tale of a 27-year-old career minor-leaguer who finally gets his shot in the NHL.
