Remember when injuries pushed Mackenzie Skapski to make his NHL debut just last season? His debut - only allowing one goal over two games - was pretty special on its own.
But simply making the NHL is one thing. Making it after overcoming serious injuries as a result of a bus crash his team was in when he was just 15 is something else entirely. After all, it's not like that's easy to come back from.
There isn't just a physical recovery, which is tough enough on its own: there's a mental and emotional recovery, too.
There's a chance that could have been it for Skapski. This feature from Rogers Hometown Hockey takes us into one of the darkest moments of his, and his family's, lives.
So yeah - making the NHL after all of that just got even more special.
It's a great story, and one that Skapski - still just 21 years old - will hopefully be able to continue to build on.
