It’s been a bit since our last update, but we hope that you’re all safe, healthy and managing through these difficult days. Let’s get up to date on things, shall we?
Everyone at Nucks Misconduct is sending positive thoughts to Colby Cave and his family after this announcement yesterday:
#Oilers & @Condors forward Colby Cave has been placed in a medically-induced coma & admitted to the critical care unit at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto after suffering a brain bleed overnight. Please keep Colby & his wife Emily in your thoughts & prayers at this time.— Edmonton Oilers (@EdmontonOilers) April 7, 2020
The Playoffs would’ve started today. My day would’ve consisted of appearances, greeting excited fans and gearing up for the best postseason in sports. Instead, I’m self-isolating in my case until it is safe to come out again. Don’t worry, though… I’m comfy in here.— The Stanley Cup (@StanleyCup) April 8, 2020
