BRONDBY, Denmark -- Our season has been over for a month now, and I’m back home in Denmark preparing for next season. I'm feeling good and a lot stronger than just a few weeks ago. My rehab and workouts are going well. I'm not quite there yet but I’ll get there. I'm about five pounds short of reaching my target weight so it’s not a big deal. I will be 100 percent ready for training camp in September for sure.
I plan to skate as much as I can this summer and play hockey with some old friends here at home. I’m also watching Team Denmark play games at the World Championship in Prague. My brother Mads is on that team and we’re pretty close so I’ve been watching closely from home. We’ve played together for Team Denmark a few times in the past and we both enjoyed those experiences. I really miss being there this year but it just wasn’t meant to be.
I also plan to keep following the Stanley Cup Playoffs as best as I can. It’s hard to watch the games live here because they’re on TV in the middle of the night, but I check the scores each day and follow along on the internet. I can’t wait for our team to get back to the playoffs soon.
I’ve been hearing a lot about our team’s future and I’m excited about next season and beyond that. We have some very good young players in our organization who are on their way to the NHL and I think they can help us build a good team. Next season should be a good one for us and for our fans.
I'd like to end this blog by thanking the fans for their support during my illness and recovery. I’m very grateful for each get well message I get in the mail or on social media. They mean a lot to me. Thank you fans!
