Trevor Daley’s Faint Hope Of Playing In The Stanley Cup Final

from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet,

You battle through a 13-year pro career and all of the highs and lows that come with it and finally reach the Stanley Cup final. You get handed all of the nice new swag dispersed among the Pittsburgh Penguins and San Jose Sharks, and are tossed into the middle of the media day frenzy on the Consol Energy Center concourse.

And when your big moment arrives, as Trevor Daley’s did Sunday afternoon, you show up using crutches and wearing a walking boot.

“You know what, obviously I do – I do feel sorry for myself,” said Daley. “I try to control what I can control. I can’t control this situation so I’m going to have to make the best out of it.”

The Penguins have already announced that he’s done for the playoffs with a broken left ankle. Daley got his skate stuck in a rut and fell awkwardly while getting hit by Ryan Callahan in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference final on May 20.

However, he’s still trying to keep the faintest light of hope alive, especially given that a Stanley Cup final that begins Monday might stretch all the way until June 15.
