Rodney Dangerfield once said: I went to a fight the other night, and a hockey game broke out. Now replace fight with BUD/S. Yes, a bunch of crazy SEALs trained some hockey players:
For the three dozen prospects of the Buffalo Sabres NHL team — from rookie first-round draft picks Mikhail Grigorenko, Zemgus Girgensons and Mark Pysyk to the returning members of the Rochester Americans, the Sabres’ top minor-league team — development camp started out as a day at the beach.
The Sabres enlisted the Navy SEALs to put their players through perhaps the most strenuous fitness workout of their lives.
“I was scared so I Googled Navy SEALs and watched some videos,” left winger Marcus Foligno said, “and then I was more scared. I tried to go to bed at 10 and went to bed at 1. That’s how scared I was.”
I’ll bet you were scared. Good luck in your next season. . .
