Scott Walker’s Wife Diagnosed With Cancer

While we may no have been the biggest fans of Scott Walker, it looks like he learned of some difficult news during the Bruins series: his wife, Julie, was diagnosed with cervical cancer. The good news is she is expected to make a full recovery.

Walker held back from discussing the hard news at all during the series, even after the scoring the game winning goal in Game 7.

Here’s what Walker had to say during a press conference on Saturday:

Luckily, he has a strong group of teammates that will be there to help him through this trying time. Our best wishes go out to the Walker family for a full recovery for Julie.

  1. ahh that sucks. No matter how much of a jerk he was in the series, it’s sad Walker has to go through a family crisis while still in the playoffs.
