Labor battle an eye opener for Ducks’ Winnik
Like many other players at various locales, Dan Winnik got the word early Sunday morning. Very early.
“I heard from Shane Doan at 5:40 in the morning and he said, ’We’ve reached a tentative agreement,’” the Ducks’ winger said recently from his Toronto home. ”I got another text message about 10 minutes afterward from someone else.
“Excited. Guys are excited to get back. I know some guys are leaving their cities already to go. I think it’s just the general feeling of excitement that were going to play hockey. Who knows? Maybe as soon as a week, which is kind of scary in a sense.”
All the rest
