The season from Anthony Mantha has switched to the 21 last December when, in a quarrel, the defender of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Jake Muzzin was overthrown in a vicious way. Almost two months later, Mantha explained that the rehabilitation has been difficult and that despite the season of misery experienced by the Red Wings, he still found the positive.
After suffering a tear of the ligament at the back and a punctured lung, the quebec striker has scored two points in his return to the game, Tuesday night against the Sabres.
The path to recovery, however, has been long and difficult. “With the lung puncture, I couldn’t do anything for three weeks. No physical activity, I absolutely couldn’t do anything. Three weeks for an athlete to absolutely nothing, this is unusual”, he confided Thursday in an interview with TVA Sports.
Quebec has also spoken of his team, the Red Wings, who knows another season of disaster. They point to the last-place ranking in the NHL with 14 victories in 58 parts.
Despite this, the new general manager Steve Yzerman has reassured the players by telling them that this was part of the process, and that the best was to come for the team.
“It is difficult to find the positive these days, but we are young, everyone takes from the experience, one learns to play in different situations. You can’t be at a point lower than it is now.”
