After undergoing wrist surgery, Beau Bennett has been in his native California rehabbing getting ready for this upcoming season. 

Bennett said this about his wrist injury: 

“I was kind of rushing back to play as quick as possible. When I did injure it, I was so sick of watching the games I just said, ‘oh, I’ll just deal with it after the season’s over.’ Progressively got a little worse and worse as the season went on.”

Beau says he is taking recovery a bit slower this time to ensure he will be healthy and ready to go. Bennett returns to the ice this week.
