Once Upon an NHL Fan

An NHL Fan Is Born

I remember it like it was yesterday. #12 evading defenders, skating over the line, and just as the big hit was about to be delivered, sending a pin point perfect pass to #16 who then blasted a screaming slap-shot past the helpless goaltender.

I was killing it with these guys! As it would turn out, #12 and #16 were Adam Oates and Brett Hull, two of the games biggest stars. I was instantly hooked and started watching hockey on ESPN whenever I could. I’d buy hockey cards and started reading sports almanacs to learn more about the history of the game and its players.

I bought jerseys, went to games, and followed the standings and stats daily. I sat on the edge of my couch through every dramatic playoff game. I’m 41 years old now.
