“I think, early on, I got a lot of rest. It was different. I wasn’t used to sitting out. You play a few games, and then you sit out one game, it was definitely different mentally. But in the long run, it was good for me, definitely. I think in the future, it’s just something I have to get used to, because our goal is to play for another month and a half, and that’s the time that I think it’s really going to pay off.”

The plan was going well until Marty Biron broke his collarbone and Hank had to play 33 straight games, playoffs included, before the Rangers were eliminated. Marty started 15 games last season and I think that he will likely get between 15-20 this season, maybe even a couple more if Hank can find his groove quicker after sitting out a game. Like he he says, the goal is to play into May and June and if that means playing fewer games in the regular season, he will sign up for it.
