I can understand not wanting to give up on your dream. And I don't think he should if the next few months to go great. He had a terrible injury and should take as much time as needed to get fully healthy and then work his way towards a comeback. No need to rush it over just a couple months. His health is important, not just for hockey, but everyday living.
After suffering an injury in November and taking time to recover and reflect, I have decided to step away from the game game of hockey for the time being.
I would like to thank Geoff Molson, Marc Bergevin, the entire Montreal Canadiens organization as well as the Hamilton Bulldogs organization for everything they have done for me. They have been unwavering in their support, professionalism and kindness.
I cannot thank them enough. Big thanks to all the fans of hockey as well.
Blake was running a hockey school at the time of the last interview and is just starting to work out and get into shape before taking up skating. All he did at the school was gliding around on his skates, it's a long road back for him.
I sincerely wish him all the best that life can offer and hope he can still have the career he worked at all of his life.The Geoffrion family has had more tragedy as a result of playing professional hockey than most.
Howie Morenz, Blake's great-grandfather died due to another accident playing hockey.
Grandfather Bernie was a force in the Habs five Stanley Cups in the 50's, married Marlene Morenz and they are Blake's grandparents.
Danny Geoffrion the former Habs #7th OV pick is Blake's father and Bernie and Marlene's son, making Blake and possibly Sebastian both 4th generation NHLers.
Hooray for a great family that reside in Nashville and continue a tradition of excellence in hockey.
