Ehn's Return Lifts Falcons
by Mike Machnik/CHN Senior Editor
WORCESTER, Mass. Senior Eric Ehn, a Hobey Baker Award finalist last year, returned to the lineup for the first time in over two months. Although he was held off the scoresheet, he didn't seem to be feeling much of the effects of the layoff or his leg injury.
But after the game, Ehn let on that it was a tougher battle than it might have looked from above.
"It felt a little tired about midway through the game, but then the adrenaline took over. Coming down the stretch, it felt pretty good," Ehn said.
"A couple times trying to turn, I went straight into the boards — going too fast, leg won't do it.
"The play changes direction so quick, and you've got to anticipate it. Even if you anticipate really well and get the breaks and try to go the other way, and you don't have that first two steps, you're behind the play.
"But it's a long road to recovery still. I'm just going to work hard and see how far I can get."
Ehn, a native of Dexter, Mich., finishes his college career with 53-93—146 in 133 games played.
