DES MOINES -- If Mike Liambas has learned one thing during his hockey career, it's that nothing ever really stays the same.
"Just looking at my life, I've had to come to that conclusion," the 29-year-old Iowa Wild forward said. "I've hit rock bottom where I thought I was done playing hockey, but you just don't know what is coming next. It's a cliché but you never know what is going to happen when you go through that next door."
For Liambas, that next door has meant moving to Iowa after signing a two-year, two-way contract with Minnesota in July and becoming a father for the first time with the birth of his son, Bodhi, in September.
