    Kexin Zhang retired?!? I was unaware of this, but I'm shocked to hear it. It seemed she was just getting started. Sad.

    I don't think they say it was retirement just that something's keeping her off the ice and it's not clear why she's off the ice.

    This scared me, but I feel better after seeing gmyers' report that she's just off the ice right now. I wish we knew more about what's going on.
