A Feel Good Story



Former Boston Bruin forward Steve Begin, after missing two years of hockey following hip surgery, has completed his comeback this evening by cracking the lineup of the Calgary Flames, the team that originally drafted him in 1996.

Steve was in the Calgary training camp on a professional tryout. He beat out prospects Paul Byron, Ben Street and Akim Aliu to earn the spot. Steve took a regular shift on the fourth line for the Flames this evening, and looked pretty good. He saw time on the PK and hit the crossbar on a shorthanded breakaway. He showed that he still has very good skating speed, which is one thing that Bruins fans may remember fondly of Steve.

There was a scary moment for Steve when he blocked a hard shot and left the ice for the second half of the second period, but he returned in the third and continued to fearlessly block shots despite getting hurt earlier.

Nice to see a good character player like Steve Begin return to the NHL after overcoming a serious injury!
