Man he's a handsome fucker.

Every now and again, you post a comment that is spot-on - and this is one of those. Handsome as fuck.
 

Too bad you can’t seem to manage any spot-on comments for anything that is actually goalie related... 😁

Also glad to see this about Hank. Best news I’ve had today!

I'm not sure how this is even humanly possible.  I guess maybe the procedure wasn't "open heart" as I understand it.   My understanding is that open heart surgery involves cutting through the ribs/breastbone to allow the surgeon room to work.   I thought I also read the he had to have a valve replaced and that the typical recovery was over 3 months!  I've never been the biggest Hank fan, but damn this is nothing short of superhuman!

Full replacement of the aortic root, aortic valve, and ascending aorta; so, yeah, full-on open heart surgery. Most of the recovery apparently takes place in 4-6 weeks, 28-42 days, but to be back on the ice in 47 days? Extremely impressive.
