“Jacob’s parents have received over 15 requests for interviews and don’t want to give any at the moment,” a person close to Jacob Fowler recently told me.
I risked a call anyway… and I didn’t regret it.
A story worthy of a movie.https://t.co/TgcoenOles

Martineau called the goalie’s parents to talk about his childhood, and he wasn’t disappointed with the answers.
According to Jay Fowler, Jacob and the stick couldn’t be separated. He carried it everywhere and played only with it.
Another coincidence: Jacob Fowler’s grandfather married a Quebec woman in the 90s. This allowed Jacob’s father to visit Quebec, and he fell in love with the place. So much so that he confessed to Anthony Martineau that he would join his son in La Belle Province when he played professionally.
On top of all this, we’ve already told you, but Jacob Fowler really seems to love Montreal. He had a good development camp and impressed many journalists with his interview answers, not least because of his ease.
We’re all very eager to see what the future holds for the goalkeeper, but we’ll have to be patient. It would be realistic to see him spend the next two years in the NCAA, before getting his chance in the AHL with the Rocket.
Fowler has what it takes to have a good NHL career. But he needs to keep up the good work if he’s ever to wear the team colors on his mini-hockey stick.
