TSN host James Duthie wrote a column for today’s Ottawa Citizen extolling the virtues of Boston Bruins defenseman Aaron Ward.
It’s worth a read and definitely a deserving tribute to one of the unsung Bruins players. For example, you won’t see those two shots Ward blocked — including one Dany Heatley rocket — at the end of the first period Thursday in Ottawa on the highlights, but you can believe Ward would block shots again if he had to.
MK: Only one grip with the story. Duthie’s not around the Bruins enough to claim that Ward never spouts cliches. He, in fact, does — sometimes. The difference is, unlike most players, Ward will tell you he’s giving you a cliche before he delivers it.
