The general plan in the mind of Abbotsford Heat center Krys Kolanos
on the night of Oct. 28 was to make his mark on a game against Grand Rapids.
After sitting out from the sport for more than 21 months with a hip injury, you'd like people to notice that you're back.
"I was just dialed into the game," Kolanos said. "I knew I wanted to pick up at an even higher level than when I left off."
So much time had passed since he last played, it might have been hard to remember where that bar was set. Kolanos reminded them. He produced a hat trick and a helper in his return against the Griffins, then added a goal and two assists two nights later against Hamilton.
