Ben Fanelli on Oct. 30 after being hit into the glass. Five months later, Fanelli is back on skates and even took part in a team penalty shot contest after practice last week.
Here's a link to the article, though it's mostly about the Kitchener Rangers' season and only has the small blurb above about Fanelli.
