    "In this Gopher Classics replay from February 5, 2016, Gopher Women's Hockey all-time great Amanda Kessel returned to the ice after missing nearly two years of competition as Minnesota defeated North Dakota 3-0 at Ridder Arena."

    I knew I should not have come in here. It is crazy that she retired due to the injury, but since she Brett Favred she has stayed very healthy, eh?

    It took a bit for your response but...The KDS is still very real.

    I realize that you're referring to concussions, but I wouldn't ever use the phrase "stayed very healthy" when speaking about Amanda Kessel. The first time I ever saw her, I was watching a game at SSM in hopes of seeing her and the Lams, and she was sitting in the stands in street clothes; that was a sign of what was to come. Kessel battled injury much of her rookie season, was mostly healthy as a sophomore, and then her Kaz year was one injury after another. She was coming off surgery (hip?) and was listed on the fourth line in the opener against Colgate, was injured again and missed a game by the series in Grand Forks. When UND came to town in January, she was probably as healthy as she was at any point in her UM career and she had six goals and four assists in the series. That was against a team that I think was as good as any team in the country outside of the Gophs. Then she hurt her arm later in February and wasn't able to hold her stick at times down the stretch. Kessel finished with 101 points in 37 games, a few of which she played a very limited role. I wonder what kind of season she would have had if she'd been healthy. For her abbreviated senior season, she wasn't even lifting, so she wasn't at the same level that she'd been three years before.

    Her post UM career has been all healthy from what I have seen with the national team, though I admit I don't pay much attention to her when she's on the ice. Her shifts are the run to the fridge or go make a deposit times, even if she's playing with players who I like.

    Not bad for a gimp with one hand tied behind her back!
    I remember it being a knee and hand injury if it matters. She was magic on ice.
