Quick healer: Paquette’s playing for Lightning

Cedric Paquette

Cedric Paquette


Just two days ago, Tampa Bay Lightning forward Cedric Paquette suffered a fall that brought back unsettling memories of Steven Stamkos’ ruinous crash. Despite that scary scene, Paquette’s in the starting lineup against the Montreal Canadiens tonight.

If you cannot see that Tweet, note that Paquette is skating with Ryan Callahan and Jonathan Drouin, at least to start things off.

It’s quite the turnaround by Paquette. Feel free to file this under “Why hockey players are tough.”

Tampa Bay made an adjustment with Paquette back.
