If you ever needed an example of how fast life can change, then look no further than former Washington Capital Wojtek Wolski.
As you may recall, the former Capital and current KHL player was seriously injured in a game on October 13th when he slid head-first into the boards. Wolski was left motionless and had to be stretchered off the ice.
The injury was very serious, a broken neck, but it could have been worse. Wolski was able to communicate with fans the following day from his hospital bed, telling fans thanks and that he would be ok.

I am overwhelmed by all the support I've received over the last few days from around the world. Thank you so much to everyone. It will be a few months before I can play again but the doctors are confident I will make a full recovery. @khl @hc_metallurg @hcmetallurg #hockey #selfie #thankful
Fast forward just three short weeks and we find Wolski making the rounds with his son Weston on Halloween, neck brace and all.
Even better, on Tuesday night, Wolski announced via his Instagram account that he and his wife are expecting a baby girl.
What a wild ride for Wolski and his family over the past several weeks. From an intensive care unit on October 13th, to trick-or-treating with his family on October 31st, to learning on November 1st that his family would be welcoming a little girl very soon.
