Funny how it often comes full circle in the hockey world.
Defenseman Christian Ehrhoff, then a teenager, left to go work out and his life changed by the time he got home that summer day in 2001. He returned to find he was the property of an NHL team.
"I wasn't at the draft," Ehrhoff said Wednesday. "I remember I went for a run and I came back home and I checked online and I was surprised to see my name already. I was happy to go to the Sharks."
The general manager of the San Jose Sharks then was current Kings GM Dean Lombardi. San Jose's coach happened to be Darryl Sutter.
Now Ehrhoff is playing...
