Weinrich Journal

via the St. Louis Blues,
Each week Blues veteran defenseman Eric Weinrich will be sharing his thoughts and experiences from the NHL season with fans here at his online journal: In 1988, a young man from Gardiner,Maine, was working construction during the summer. Fresh off the Olympics in 1988, he was ready to return to college at the University of Maine for a third year. After two weeks of minimum wage and 5 a.m. alarms, he got a visit from an old teammate who had just turned pro. After the weekend with his friend, his life changed forever. That young man was me, of course, and here I am writing to you 17 years later. I am honored to have played with and against some of the greatest players who have ever played the game. Take Peter Statsny for example. He was a Slovakian who defected from his country to play in the NHL and became one of the greatest playmakers ever, as well as a hero to hockey players in his homeland.
