Ryan Whitney Article on the Players' Tribune

"In 2013, Ryan Whitney's ankles were shot and his NHL career was done. Instead of going back to school or hitting the beach, Whitney decided to explore playing abroad, perhaps in Sweden or Switzerland. He would end up in Russia, however, where he'd encounter weird groceries, Red Army-era coaches and cigarette-smoking nurses.

'Let me preface the rest of this story by saying that I’m a kid from Boston about to get on a plane and be thrown into a very strange experience on the other side of the world. You may experience some strong language. Viewer discretion is advised.'"

... Ryan Whitney has written an article about being a North American player playing abroad in Russia on The Players' Tribune. Check out his article using this link:
