That's pretty frightening. Hope he doesn't suffer any permanent damage.

He can still play hockey without a toe.. will be tough to get used to it, but it's possible. Heck, Berard played with one eye...

Right, it's perfectly fair to assume that Danny Kristo was high on drugs, even though there has been no official confirmation.

Apparently she tried to leave, but injured herself somehow, and went back to her car. She wrote notes(post-it's of some sort) about her survival in the car...there were 5 days of notes, then nothing. The car was found under the snow three weeks later.

The latest on Kristo:

Quote:
Kristo, a native of Eden Prairie, Minn., is being treated at Regions Hospital in St. Paul.

A hospital spokesperson says UND hockey forward Danny Kristo is listed in fair condition as of Wednesday.

UND coach Dave Hakstol says Kristo was transferred from Grand Forks to St. Paul on Monday morning, and says Kristo will stay at Regions to begin the recovery process.

"We have been in close contact with Danny's family," said Hakstol in a statement released Tuesday. "My concern is with Danny's health and his full recovery."

Hakstol said Wednesday that Kristo did not break any team rules.

Grand Forks is damn cold. It can get up to -70 below (with windchill) and it's not fun. They don't close school for nothing. I had a dead car battery and no jumper cables and had to walk to my finals 4 days in a row in this weather for about a half hour walk. If you're not bundled up, frostbite is probably likely.

Danny wasn't doing anything wrong. If his coach says that, I believe him. I'm glad I, at least have some compassion.

Thanks to MissSioux85 and sfo for the updates.
About compassion...it's true and I agree.

And, all kidding aside (previous posts with jokes) I hope Danny will be perfectly fine. I can see why people would joke about this (I laughed a bit as well while reading some posts here, I'm guilty!), and I can also understand that we shouldn't laugh at this... and in the end of all this I just hope Danny will be more than ok (still not sure how all of this happened to Danny).
Get well soon, Danny.

And, on a separate note/story...no one should freeze to death and no one should go unprepared in such cold temperature (that story of a woman dying in the car...poor lady, wouldn't want to die like that in such cold).

Actually even moderate amounts of alcohol thins your blood. Alcohol stimulates peripheral vessel dilation which causes you lose body heat at a quick rate, thus causing your extremities to freeze before other parts.

The only time I've ever gotten frostbite (pretty bad) was when I passed out DRUNK in a snowbank (on a hill) I couldn't climb to get to my apartment.

And perhaps hard drugs will make you feel like you're in summer, like Cocaine, Meth and LSD, but could you imagine smoking a joint and finding out it had just snowed two feet? It's terrifying, man. I don't go outside in this BS and I can say I partake in the odd (and even) toke.

Alcohol is far more dangerous for your health in the frigid cold than drugs are. At least coke will give you the energy to get home quicker.

Still sounds weird...how do you "lose your shoe"? Could he not have looked for it and put it back on? It would have been a lot better than walking home with one shoe off and one shoe on...I don't get it.

Another update

Quote:
St. Paul, Minn. - Feb. 3 - University of North Dakota hockey player Danny Kristo remains in fair condition at Regions Hospital in St. Paul, Minn.

Kristo, who is suffering from frostbite on the toes of his right foot, maintains full use of all of his extremities and is in the early stages of recovery.

"I'm doing fine, I'm planning on recovering as safely and as quickly as possible," Kristo said. "I'm just trying to get better day by day. I'm doing better today than I was yesterday and I was doing better yesterday than I was the day before. I'm feeling a lot better than I was the first two days.

"I definitely feel fortunate, I definitely feel lucky. I want to say thanks to the fans and friends and family members who have prayed for me."

Said Kristo's father, Mark Kristo: "Our family wants to express our sincere gratitude for all of the thoughts and prayers from his friends, supporters and the Sioux family during these past few days."

After being discharged from Regions Hospital, Kristo is expected to remain at his parents' home in Eden Prairie, Minn., for continued treatment before returning to Grand Forks.

Link? My grandfather used to tell me how -55 was 'nothing' back in the day, but he was off by about 20 degrees, and two bottles of Brandy.

No trouble with his extremities, crisis averted. Let's get back to writing off Louis Leblanc again, that's always fun.

Now, just to play devils advocate here... if he took this so-called shortcut (which I totally would do if it was flippin' cold as it apparently was) and he lost a shoe.... if it was dark out and it's in a snow bank somewhere and it's THAT cold... I don't know how much time I'd want to spend rummaging around in a snow bank looking for it without a shoe. Especially if the area was not well lit how could you see to even look for it? I would have taken my chances, found some pavement and started running. Literally. Oh, since I would venture to say most of you have never been to Grand Forks, the reason it's so cold? NO TREES! Can't breathe walking into the wind. Terrible. I live in Minneapolis now and I'm really liking this whole tall buildings thing. haha.

Anyways, so glad it seems like he's going to be okay
