I know that he still lives in the US with his family, participates in the Red Wings public events (Cup ceremony, raising of banners, etc.). His locker is still intact in the locker room, and it goes without saying that new players can't take his #16, it's unofficially retired if you will. From what I heard the Red Wings haven't abandoned him, they are helping out with his rehabilitation. He hasn't recovered all that much though, still uses the wheelchair, his balance and movements are very shaky. It's pretty sad, he was a true hockey warrior and now he can barely walk...

ceber 09-22-2003 06:50 AM

Name: Carlos

Age: 32

Location: White Bear Lake

Fav All time Minnesota player (Wild or North Stars): Don't have favorites. Didn't see much of the North Stars growing up.. Watched a lot of the Canadiens on CBC.

Fav Current Wild: Hard to say. Zholtok, Park to name two. Changes a bit. Zholtok seems to really just enjoy playing the game, which is nice.

Fav Non Wild Players: Don't really have favorites. Ryan Smyth I remember once threw some pucks to kids before a game, which I thought was pretty nice. Cliff Ronning was always a good guy.. would toss his stick to the crowd if he got a star. Seemed to enjoy playing here.

Fav Wild Prospect: Currently, Burns and Foy. Will probably change tomorrow. (Favorites just aren't my thing.)

Fav Non Wild Prospect: I hate them all. :P

Fav Movies: My tastes really vary.. hard to name a favorite. (I may have problems with committment. :))

Music: This I can list one name and genres... Grateful Dead, Jazz (not the smooth kind), Bluegrass, Classic Punk, a few of the newer punk bands as well, various Indie Rock, etc.

Hobbies: Programming, Outdoors, Photography

Fav food: Beats me... I suppose fish.

Fav Beer: I've homebrewed.. that's good stuff. Summit, Schell's, stuff at the Town Hall Brewery.

Fav Wild moment/how I became a fan: Not sure how I became a fan.. just happened. Favorite moment: Many! The obvious game-winners in last year's playoffs. The first win against Edmonton at home in OT was pretty cool. Actually, the first home playoff game was a pretty great moment, too, even though the outcome wasn't great... the pregame feeling was incredible.

How long I have been a Wild fan: half-fan the first season.. full-time the second.

Origin of screen name: letters from name.

Jerseys owned: Just Wild authentic... not numbered (yet).

Married?: Engaged for over a year.. married soon.

Kids: 0
