Geez. For someone who writes about hockey every day, I sure can miss big stories.
I had no idea Blues defenseman Al MacInnis is fighting blindness.
He had to have surgery on both eyes due to a recent stick injury and a 2001 retina injury.
He could have gone blind.
Right now, everything is touch and go.
It’s so sad. MacInnis probably would have retired after this season. Especially if the NHL ended up in a lockout.
Now the poor guy is fighting just to be able to see.
