Former Soo Eagles Player Fighting Lymphoma December 19, 2012 9:51 AM

Two days after making the varsity hockey team at Nichols College, Shane Totten heard the word you never want to hear from a doctor.

Cancer.

Shane Totten is Traverse City West’s all-time points (101) and assists (53) leader and is second in goals (48).

Coming out of Taverse City West high school as a high-scoring center, he signed to play at Finlandia when the Upper Peninsula school started a new hockey program. A semester into his freshman year, he left to play for the Flint Junior Generals where he put up 25 points in 16 games befor leaving for the Soo Eagles where he put up 74 points in 58 games.

Fortunately, the prognosis is good for the former 2010 grad. About as good as it can get w2hen facing cancer. Doctors have told him he has a 90 percent chance of remission and 75-80 percent chance of a cure.

As for the future, that will take care of itself. Upon completion of treatment Totten plans on returning to Nichols, and if all goes as planned he will resume his hockey career.
