Imagine If You were Ken Morrow…

Given the 30th anniversary of the Miracle on Ice in 1980, let’s remember the amazing career of Ken Morrow. Ken was the starting defensemen on team USA in 1980, then immediately after winning the gold medal, signed with the New York Islanders. This means that in the span of four years, Morrow won an Olympic gold medal and four straight Stanley Cups. At the time, Morrow was the only player to have won a gold medal and a Stanley Cup in the same season. Does life get better than that?? Wow! Here’s an article from the Daily News on February 20 about Ken Morrow remembering his great years in the early 1980s.
