You would have to be living under a rock to not know about the dreaded H1N1 flu virus. Even the hockey world is affected by it. Colorado goaltender Peter Budaj has contracted H1N1.
H1N1 is the worst flu since World War I. Now that Spanish Influenza virus seriously messed with the hockey world. The 1919 Stanley Cup championship series between the Seattle Metropolitans and Montreal Canadiens was cancelled after several players fell ill. Hockey Hall of Famer Bad Joe Hall of Montreal eventually died as he had contracted pneumonia on top of the dread flu.
This real life event serves as the setting for Eric Zweig's new fictional novel Fever Season by Dundurn Press.
