There are a great number of factors that go into winning a Stanley Cup.
In addition to what goes on out on the ice, a team's success comes from all levels within the organization: from the equipment staff to the front office. Blackhawks head doctor and Chicago-area native Michael Terry is one member who plays a major role within the organization. Now his name appears for a second time on the Stanley Cup.
"I've always been a fan, but after working with the Blackhawks, it's really hard not to be huge fan," Terry told the Daily Herald. "Every single one of our players is a lot of fun to work with, and they're real positive guys and good people, in addition to being great hockey players."
With the Blackhawks' home opener just one day away, Terry and his crew have a busy 82-game season to prepare for. But Terry is ready to get the regular season going.
"With a shortened offseason because of the playoffs, we're going to have to keep a close eye on everybody to make sure they aren't more likely to get injured," he said. "But I'm looking forward to seeing the guys back out on the ice."
