For most players, the NHL All-Star break represents the one time during the season that they can get some time away from the rink, relaxing with families and resting up before the stretch run leading into the postseason.
For Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Scott Darling, it meant making one of the biggest decisions of his life.
That’s because Darling got engaged during the All-Star break, popping the question to his girlfriend Martha Buckley. According to his Instagram feed, things went well:
No date has been set for the wedding, but odds are strong they’ll pick a summer date since the Blackhawks like to play hockey through a good chunk of the spring.
