Staios a good guy

Russell Hoffman, Edmonton

I just want to say what a great guy Steve Staios is.

I was in the Pro Hockey Life store in Edmonton the day before the 2009 pre-season started and was just about to leave the store when I recognized Staios.

Staios was there just like any other parent buying equipment for his son, when the staff asked him if he would sign some merchandise. Without hesitation Staios agreed.

I quickly asked him if he would sign my hat and again he promptly agreed to.

I just want to thank him for being such a class act and for signing my hat. I wish all athletes were like Steve Staios.
