Kimmo Timonen is no longer a professional hockey player. Then again, he’s 41 years old and a Stanley Cup Champion; he’s earned it.
So what to do when you’re retired? Apparently, you go on a cross-Atlantic trip. By boat.

Well, that’s really ambitious - and quite the way to spend the new year!
Anyway, looks like Timonen finally made it.

That’s a bit longer than 22 days between social media posts, but considering the work that has to go into crossing a literal ocean, not to mention the likely perils at points during travel, the gap is understandable.
Either way, though: wow. Good to see it went well! And I suppose there wouldn’t be much reason to do it again if you’ve already done it once. Definitely not like Kimmo has to prove himself to anyone.
He’s retired at a relatively young age, but it’s cool to see he’s still out and about like this! Timonen is badass.
