Chay Genoway not only thought his college career was over, he thought he may never play hockey again.
Hit to the head early in the 2009-10 season, suffered post concussion symptoms that kept him off the ice.
"Not knowing whether you're going to play at all again is pretty scary," Genoway said.
The captain watched his team go on to win the Broadmoor Trophy and into the NCAA playoffs. He wanted nothing more than to be a part of the team.
Shortly after the season ended, Genoway announced he would return after receiving a medical redshirt.
He wanted to finish what he started.
On and off the ice, Genoway makes a difference. Game changer in the rink. In the community. The class room. Genoway continues on.
What others say about Genoway:
"He's the best we've seen at his position in a long, long time." -- Inside College Hockey's Jess Myers
"He can basically play 30 minutes a night. He never seems to
get tired and can really control play because the puck always seems to
be on his stick." -- Minnesota head coach Don Lucia
"He is their rock on the defensive side. He is not the biggest guy,
but he plays with an edge." -- Minnesota captain Jay Barriball
"He's an elite player who makes the sport better with his presence." -- Minnesota Duluth radio voice Bruce Ciskie
