Pat Hickey has reported in Habs Inside/Out that Jaroslav Spacek will be out four to six weeks because of a right knee that needs arthroscopic surgery to fix.
For some, this news is neither here nor there as they weren’t huge Spacek fans in the first place.
For others, they’re extremely happy that the defenceman isn’t gone for the season and will be back for the playoff run. This includes me.
For Jacques Martin, the excitement of the news was enough for him to scream and shout, jump for joy, do cartwheels and drool and thank the Lord and whistle while he works. He couldn’t contain himself. I know this because Martin was quoted as saying the news on Spacek was “welcome.”
Calm down, Jacques.
