USA Today is publishing a series of columns this weekend from Dustin Brown about his experiences at the All-Star Game in Montreal. In the first one, Brown talks about his selection and how he feels about the game. Here’s an excerpt:
“Since being named to the NHL’s Western Conference All-Star team the first week of January, I have been asked a lot of questions. A lot of them have to do with whether I will be able to control myself during the game, as I like to hit a lot of guys out there on the ice.
I guess you could say that I am still trying to figure that one out. I know that this game won’t allow me to hit like I normally do during a regular season game — my normal game probably doesn’t suit the NHL All-Star Game style in any way — but maybe I will come up with something.”
