We had the chance to catch up with Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Scott Darling this week when he made an appearance at the team's summer youth hockey camps at Raleigh Center Ice.
Let's set the table for our wide-ranging discussion before going "the full 60" with the Canes' netminder.
CarolinaHurricanes.com: How's your summer been?
Scott Darling: Summer's been great. After the season it was pretty cool to go play for Team USA in Denmark. That was awesome. Just to be a part of the experience and put on the USA jersey, that's something I've always wanted to do, so that was great. Then, took a little time to myself. I've been back here for six or seven weeks getting my roots put in in Raleigh, settled in, got a house and just working out with our strength coach Bill Burniston. I've seen that guy way too much. I'm sick of him. It's been really good, and we've been getting a lot done, doing my training six days a week, resting on Sunday and doing it again.
