A college student warded off an intruder with his AR-15 early Tuesday morning in central New York.
Canucks president Mike Gillis said Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk "used a can opener" in delivering a brutal hit on Mason Raymond that left the Vancouver forward in a Boston hospital with a back injury.
Mistral Raymond had every excuse to go the wrong way, to leave football behind and descend into sorrow, depression or, worst of all, vengeance.
"By the time I had it out and ready, one of the men came at my door, slowly opened it, saw that there was a barrel on the other side and from there backed out," he said.
"I heard one scream from him, and I knew it wasn't like a 'I stepped on a piece of glass' kind of scream," said Raymond, a student at Rochester Institute of Technology. "It was like something primal, I guess."
