I had an entirely different column written for this week. Then the announcement of Denna Laing severe spine injury came out. Publishing commentary on the women’s Winter Classic and other events in the wake of Laing’s status feels hollow.
Instead, let’s focus at the outpouring of support for Denna throughout the community.

You can leave a message of support for Denna, subscribe to updates and donate funds for her care at DennaLaing.org.
