Tuukka Rask has no trouble unwinding after a hockey season.
The reason? He has two little daughters, 4 and 2 years old, respectively, awaiting his arrival at home.
“I don’t have to do a whole lot more than just come home and be a dad,” Rask said. “It doesn’t matter if I played well or not. They don’t care. They keep your mind steady and humble.”
The 31-year-old goaltender has played 11 seasons in the National Hockey League, all with the Boston Bruins. He’s already a Stanley Cup champion, winning the coveted prize in 2011, and nearly won a second title when he helped lead the Bruins to the 2013 final. He added some personal hardware when he won the Vezina Trophy for the 2013-14 campaign.
