Nick Boucher and Brett Smith may have been rewarded with spots in the CHL All-Star Game on Wednesday, but it wasn't all fun.
First, they had a two-hour bus ride from Prescott Valley, Ariz., to Phoenix. Then, they had a delayed flight, a canceled flight in Chicago and a four-hour drive through the snow to Fort Wayne. In all, that was 13 hours in travel Friday. Then came the wait for their equipment, which got here about 3 p.m. today.
Now they'll be able to play tonight, anyway.
