Well, short of winning the Stanley Cup this kid has gotta be on top of the world. First NHL game. Just came right from college, where his season ended about a week ago. And he scores on his first shot with his family in the stands. Pretty sweet stuff.
Update: Maybe this wasn’t the best day of his life? Gatorade player of the year IN FOOTBALL his senior season of high school in Edina, MN. Offers from all over the country. Went on to play college hockey at Notre Dame. Now he’s a pro hockey player. Not a bad life so far, not bad at all.
