from Teryy Jones of the Edmonton Sun,
Alex Burrows sits beside Roberto Luongo in the Vancouver Canucks dressing room. And he plays on the same line as Daniel and Henrik Sedin.
When you’ve recently played for the Baton Rouge Kingfish, Columbia Inferno and the Greenville Grrrowl in the ECHL, this is the kind of stuff you don’t even dare dream about.
When you are a bigger name in ball hockey than an actual hockey, playing on the No. 1 line on a top team in the Stanley Cup playoffs and sitting beside the great goalie/captain is pretty heady stuff.
“I was making $425 a week and living the dream,” said Burrows when he came off the ice for the morning skate prior to Game 2 of the series against the St. Louis Blues.
