Checking in with.... Chris Crane!
Throughout the summer, SharksAHL.com will be reaching out to Sharks players to see what they have been up to since the season ended in mid April. Our first victim is rookie forward Chris Crane. Chris played eight games with the Worcester Sharks after he wrapped up his third season with Ohio State University. The 24-year-old was drafted by the SJ Sharks with the 200th pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
Hey Sharks fans! This is Chris Crane checking in from Cincinnati, Ohio.
Since the season has ended I have turned my focus into my off ice training. I like to workout in the mornings for a couple of hours so I can enjoy some golf later on in the afternoon. I also have been spending a lot of time watching the NHL Playoffs! Hockey is my passion and I find it really relaxing to come home and fall asleep to hockey.
Coming to Worcester after my junior season at Ohio State was a great experience. The town is a great place to be and the fan support is phenomenal. I didn’t really know what to expect when stepping into professional hockey and I now know Worcester is going to be a great place to play.
Away from hockey and my off ice training I am really enjoying spending time with my family and friends. I actually just went and saw the Hangover Part III movie with my family and it was a great time. There is not a lot of time during the season for family and friends so it is always special in the off-season. I am also looking forward to the Brad Paisley concert coming up that I will be attending with my hometown friends. I am a huge country music fan and I get to go with some of my best friends so I am really excited.
The next page in the book for me is to get ready for development and training camp. My entire focus is to be ready for these two camps and I can’t wait. I just want to thank all of the fans for supporting our team and I look forward to seeing everyone next season!
