Dallas Stars forward Mattias Janmark, 24, is all too familiar with the disease, as it cost him the entire 2016-17 season. In September 2016, Janmark had a piece of knee bone connected by a screw. In March 2017, he had the screw removed. Then came several months of rehab to prepare for this season.

Then came the start of the season. Janmark had played an important role in the Stars' Central Division championship in his rookie season of 2015-16, with 29 points in 73 games. How would he react after missing a season? Well, Janmark has three goals and five assists in 15 games, skating 17:05 per game.

You can't help but feel good that a promising rookie, who spent Year 2 off the ice because of a peculiar disease, is back and contributing after a long road back to Dallas. And hopefully without any joint mice in his future. Here is the NHL iron on stickers. is worth looking forward to the.

Emily Kaplan: I've been to a handful of Blackhawks games this season, and I can tell you the exact moment the United Center was the loudest: when Bryan Bickell took the ice. It was before Chicago's season-opener, and nearly a year since the former Blackhawks and Carolina Hurricanes winger had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Bickell had signed a one-day contract to skate one last shift and retire as a Blackhawk. The lights were dimmed, a spotlight followed the 31-year-old onto the ice and the place went nuts.

Chris Peters: There is usually no shortage of inspiring stories in a given NHL season, but one that stands out to me this season -- aside from Boyle's -- is what Derek Dorsett has been doing for the Vancouver Canucks.

The 30-year-old winger is less than a year removed from spinal surgery to remove a damaged disc, which was replaced by a washer and a piece of bone from his hip, according to a recent story by Sportsnet's Iain MacIntyre. The fact that he has been able to return to living his life normally, let alone playing again, is an accomplishment in itself. But Dorsett didn't simply come back. He is thriving.
