Inspirational words from Eddie Giacomin

Roland Mirault, Hanmer, Ont.

What can be said about Eddie Giacomin? He is a class act all the way.

While attending a Sudbury Wolves game with my son and my goalie who both play for my "Teddy Shack Senior Tykes" hockey club, we we're fortunate enough to meet up with Giacomin. He took the time to give us his autograph and take pictures with us.

Eddie spoke to the kids about the importance of hard work and especially having fun in hockey. He gave a special talk to my goalie, Evan, on how he himself became a goalie.

Eddie has forever changed the life of these two children. Both my son and I happen to be New York Ranger fans and we will cherish this moment forever. Thanks Eddie.
