    Summary

    Just before the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, top prospect Jack Zimmermann overdoses on his anxiety medication and is admitted to rehab. His future turns from a clear-cut road to the top into an uncertain path filled with therapy appointments, ignored text messages, a group of boys who aren't there to teach him a lesson about himself, and, of course, hockey.

    Summary

    ‘You’re helping now. Talking to someone is good. I just wish I weren’t alone here,‘ Eric sends, and then he immediately feels silly for putting the last part.

    Summary

    “how to be a monster:
    1. learn the taste of dirt and pain.
    2. teach it to others till your knuckles bleed.
    3. see if that makes it easier to breathe.”
    — rinse and repeat, Amrita C.

    Summary

    He looks at Kent and feels nothing, if nothing feels like a shattered rib cage, all the protection around his heart gone. Kent is right in front of him, his hair falling into his face and his hands clenched in the sheets, but if Jack closes his eyes, Kent could be anywhere.

    (or, Jack and Kent can’t keep their bond if they both want to play in the NHL.)

    Summary

    Kent
    The cute guy in my class hurt himself and is on crutches. My first thought was "Good. He'll be easier to take down." Like he’s a gazelle and I’m a dick tiger.

    Jack

    Summary

    “No,” Chowder says, shaking his head. “I didn’t do it, you guys did when you decided you’d try. Sorry, but I just sat here and ate cupcakes. Mostly. Sorry.”
     

    Chowder comes back to Samwell after winter break with a resolution: Dex and Nursey are going to stop fighting and start getting along this year if it's the last thing Chowder does.

    Summary

    Jack always feels like he’s running. Running to catch up. Running to get ahead. Lungs burning. Legs about to give out. Falling behind, behind, behind. Coming in dead last, even when he hits the finish line before anyone else.

     

     

    Jack struggles through his years in the QMJHL, anxiety and expectations on his shoulders and Kent Parson at his side.

    Summary

    Spending one-on-one time with Bitty when this awkward feelings thing keeps happening is not a good idea, Jack’s sure of that, but, well— the other option is not doing anything and watching Bitty get kicked off the team.
