Bryan Bickell was forced to step away from the game of hockey last season after receiving a diagnosis that he had MS. A debilitating disease for anyone; a devastating disease when your career is that of a professional hockey player.
The pride’n’joy of Orono was a member of three Stanley Cup champion teams with the Chicago Blackhawks and played 384 of his 395 career NHL games with Chicago.
A class-act player. And a classy hockey operation.
Yeah, I’m a little teary here too.
