From Russo’s Rants:
I didn’t reach Sheppard yet today, but agent Mark Guy said he was in Vail training with several NHLers. In fact, I believe a number of Wild players are there, too, like Chuck Kobasew, etc.
After their Saturday morning activities, the agenda called for a guided scenic tour of the mountain. On his ATV, Sheppard swerved to avoid a truck in his path, crashed and broke his left patella. Guy said he was “devastated” and worked extremely hard this summer to have a good year.
