Hi everybody, Alex Burrows here. I’m in Helsinki, Finland for the World Championships and I thought it might be fun to keep a blog during my time here.
My writing resume will double with this blog, the only other time I’ve done something like this was when I wrote a blog for Canucks.com, but that was a long time ago. Disco might have still been popular.
Anyways, welcome to Finland, as I’m sure you noticed, it’s cold here. I packed for the occasion thankfully and am now adjusted to the weather. What I’m struggling to adjust to is the 10 hour time difference from here to Vancouver. We landed in Helsinki on Wednesday after a few days spent practicing and bonding in Zurich, so we haven’t been here too long. I’m hoping to feel more at home Friday.
It’s Thursday night for me and we play our first game tomorrow against Zdeno Chara and Team Slovakia. I can’t tell you how excited I am to put a Team Canada jersey on and hit the ice. Dream come true.

I practiced with Eberle and Nugent-Hopkins today, so I think we’ll play together tomorrow. Should be interesting. Lots of nickname possibilities for us ha ha. I’m focused on playing a solid 2-way game with a lot of the forecheck, and providing net presence. I’m also hoping to play a big role on the PK.
It’s odd coming together with NHL rivals like this, but there’s no hard feelings or grudges, we’re all here to win Gold for Canada. One guy I’ll get to know well is Marc-Édouard Vlasic, the only other player from Quebec. We’re roommates.
That’s about all I’ve got right now, hope to have you cheering on Team Canada tomorrow!
Have a good rest of your day. Bedtime for me now.
Burr

Burrows may be concussed.......
He just collided with a Slovakian a few minutes ago. He was wobbly all the way to the dressing room.

He did look good out there with Eberle and Nuge though.

It was a pretty regular play. Kind of just skated in the zone and collided. At least that's all I saw.

They didn't give a replay so I rewound it on my PVR. There wasn't much to see, but I agree, it just looked like they ran into each other.

Poor Burr. He did not look good skating off of the ice. So wobbly. :(

I hope we don't hear anything bad at intermission.

The good thing to come out of this is IF he is concussed, he has plenty of time to recover for Canucks hockey.

Pretty hard to see what happened they didnt have a replay but he did not look good trying to get off the ice. Hope Burr is ok.

They showed a replay at the intermission and he got tangled up between 2 defenders and slammed his head on the ice hard. Not good.
