    Summary

    And so it was that Jack was traded to the Providence Falconers. A scrappy team that wasn't terrible, but also not terribly impressive. They usually hovered around the middle of their conference, occasionally making the playoffs, but more often than not they missed the wildcard spot by only a couple of points.

    The Falcs were doing well so far this season, but that was almost no thanks to Jack. An injury the second week of November had derailed him for at least the remainder of the calendar year. With his history, Jack had insisted on the bare minimum for painkillers, not wanting to risk longer-term exposure to any prescription that was not 110% necessary.

    Maybe it was the lingering physical pain a week after his prescription ran out, maybe it was a different kind of pain that had yet to heal, but Jack finally left his condo in search of a place to self-medicate. He found a small bar a couple streets away and decided to take a chance that he would not be recognized.

    Summary

    “It is your professional duty to ogle the booty,” Shitty says solemnly. “Honestly, brah, you have not lived until you’ve seen Jack Zimmermann’s jeans try to contain his ass when he bends over to pick something up. And this is a construction zone, Bits. He has to pick stuff up all the time.”

    +++

    Jack and Kent are the ridiculously handsome house-renovating married retired hockey players that’ve been making HGTV an absolutely stupid amount of money with their new show.

    And Eric Bittle just got hired to be their show’s caterer.

    Summary

    "Who's this Zimmermann guy?" Shitty echoes, voice several notches louder than Bitty's. A few people glance their way and Lardo rolls her eyes. "He's only the best player the NHL's seen since Sidney Crosby," he goes on, obviously enthused.

    "So, he's...good?" Bitty offers.

    "Bitty, my man, my bro, my sweet summer child. Jack motherfucking Zimmermann is like poetry on skates. The guy has a psychic connection with the ice. He could punch me in the face and I would thank him."

    Summary

    "We're going to the draft, Kenny. Together," Jack had mouthed to him, fingers spreading out and linking with his own. There were stars in his eyes as he stared out at the night sky in listless wonder. Had turned to him with those damned crinkles that softened the harsh blue.

    With an empty smile, Kent had grabbed the outstretched hand into his and given it a firm squeeze, unable to say anything in response. They stood there for what felt like hours, the Quebec air bitingly cold in the face of empty enthusiasm.

    aka Kent goes to Samwell instead of Jack, and Jack goes First, and how they find their way back to each other

    Summary

    “Bittle, has no one ever taught you anything about narrative devices?” Johnson asks.

    “...No.”

     “Narratively speaking, the only reason that Jack has to come to Samwell is to recruit me to the Falconers. But he’s spent the majority of his time here talking to you. You don’t have to be a metaphysical goalie to see where this story arc is going.” Johnson says.

    Jack never went to Samwell, but is sent there to recruit Johnson to the Falconers. Somehow, he spends a lot more time with a certain blonde baker than with anyone else.
