Derek Dorsett Will Not Return To The Active Roster Due To Health Concerns

I remember when he broke in with Columbus and few seemed to think he was
more than a fringe grinder, too small to do much as a fighter and with too little skill to really make it in the league.

What an utterly fearless and team-first player. Like a Tasmanian Devil.

It was fun seeing him score some goals early this season, too, after coming back from such a serious injury.

To make in the big leagues to age 30 with over 500 games is a nice accomplishment for a 7th round pick to say the least.
