Chicago Blackhawks Goalie Has Quad City Ties
We spoke with Ted Schlipp, he's the former coach for the Quad City Express, the team that Scott Darling started on in the Quad Cities as a teenager before working his way up to the NHL.
Ted called it when Darling was just a teen: "The sky is the limit to be honest with this kid; he is one of the handful of kids in this league that I say that can play in Division I or make it to NHL eventually. I'm not saying he will, but he has that kind of potential at this age. It's a long road, though."
Here's Ted with Darling as a Blackhawk:
