By way of the Coyotes morning skate, where the Great One weighed in on the state of his team, here’s Shane Doan on his former teammate Fred Sjostrom:
“You’d be hard-pressed to find someone more liked in our room than Freddie,” Doan said. “He’s such a great guy. Everybody loves him. You really cheer for him. He’s one of those guys that everyone cheers for, except for tonight. Every other night, we cheer for him.”
For the record, my repeated lobbying for Sjostrom to get more prominent ice time has nothing to do with the fact that he’s a nice guy. But that happens to be the case.
