While Im disappointed were not playing right now, nothing is more important than everyones health and safety. The league did the right thing today. Thanks to the 5th Line for your unbelievable support. We have the best fans in the world and well get through this together.— Nick Foligno (@NickFoligno) March 12, 2020
Calm and measured, the words from Foligno help us put the game we all love into context. This is just a moment where we put our lives on pause and recalibrate. Hockey will always be there. Having the stars of the league come out and let us know this isn't the end of the world is a breath of fresh air.
