We've been fortunate enough to have many former teammates and good friends play professional hockey. As most people know the career of a professional athlete is terminal and the majority of us have to embark on our second careers once our playing days are over. Our former classmate and captain at Colorado College, Lee Sweatt enjoyed a 5 year pro career spanning the NHL, KHL, SM Liga, AHL and the EBEL. Lee was kind enough to take some time out of his schedule to talk about his time at CC, pro hockey and what he is up to now.
We hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. As always, there was lots of hockey going on with Cody Lampl and many of our former teammates in action overseas.
The Vienna Capitals lost to Karat Oulu of the Finnish SM-Liga in Champions Hockey League action today. It was a meaningless game for both teams, as they finished 1 &2 in their group to advance to the round of 32.
I'm not gonna lie, it's a little bitter sweet following the Vienna Capitals as they start their Champions Hockey League season. With that being spend it was a great three years there and I still have a lot of friends on the team and Viennese friends who follow the site.
