I'm sure by now you've all heard of the heart-warming-est story of the off-season. An Ottawa goaltender, Christian Rusu, who plays Bantam House-League got the hockey experience of a lifetime when he unexpectedly took place in a Senators practice.
"I was undressing and a guy just came running in and said, 'We need a goalie," Rusu said as he removed his goalie mask, revealing his braces and the beginnings of a moustache.I love this story. It tickles the cockles of the heart (you'd use that phrase if you could too). A kid gets to play with his heroes.....but it begs the question, why do Senator goaltenders have such a hard time showing up for practice? Ray Emery and the missing goalie from this story, I'm looking at you, you bastards.
"...... one of the expected goaltenders failed to show on Monday so the call went out for an immediate replacement. Enter Christian."
