If you didn’t follow along on Twitter yesterday, the Shawn Hunwick media blitz was in full force as he was signed to an amateur tryout contract with the Columbus Blue Jackets following yet another injury to one of their goalies. Hunwick drove down to Columbus during the afternoon and suited up as the Blue Jackets backup goalie last night against the Detroit Red Wings.
The ATC was only for one day, but apparently the injury is serious enough for the Jackets to sign Hunwick for the remainder of the regular season. Whether or not he sees any playing time remains to be seen. What an incredible story and journey it has been for Shawn!
Here’s a link to a great recap of Hunwick’s whirlwind day yesterday. Definitely worth a read!
