From Patrick Dorsey at the Miami Herald,
Any remaining doubters of his town’s passion might check [Stefan] Meyer’s calls-received log. After receiving word at practice that he had been called up [to the Florida Panthers], Meyer got excited.
Then, when the town itself got word, Fox Valley got excited. ‘‘My phone just about blew up [Monday],’’ Meyer said. ``It was smoking from my pocket.’‘
Meyer expects similar thrills back home Wednesday, although the locals again might need to hike to Medicine Hat for a TV that carries the game. Meanwhile, more than 2,600 miles away, Meyer expects to feel the same when he first touches NHL regular-season ice.
‘‘A lot of things will flash before my eyes—just growing up as a kid and skating and stuff like that,’’ Meyer said. ``It seems so far away. But I’m here right now, and I can hardly talk I’m so excited.’‘
