With bitter cold and rapidly piling snow across North America, it hasn't been an easy week for travelers. Zenon Konopka is the one of the many to discover that fact.
The Sabres claimed the center at noon Friday, which started his journey from Minnesota to Buffalo. He packed and went to the airport and made it to LaGuardia Airport in New York City. Then everything fell apart, according to his Twitter and Instagram accounts.
Konopka left LaGuardia without success and arrived at JFK Airport this morning. He was far from the only person at Terminal 5, which was its usual gong show with overflowing crowds (and, based on past experience, poorly timed TSA shifts).
He made it through security to his plane. While the 6-foot, 213-pounder got stuck with a middle seat, he's apparently finally on his way to Buffalo for tonight's game against the Devils.
