Not long ago, we wondered if Kent Hughes was gambling his reputation with the Jeff Petry file. The club hadn’t introduced the defenseman to the media, and according to reports, the GM hadn’t contacted Petry’s agent. A bit of nothingness for the Petry family.
“I had to hide it from our producer. My lips were sealed, and I didn’t want to do anything to jeopardize this transaction.”
A proud pop ❤️

Dan, a former Tigers pitcher, can’t wait to see his son wear #46 (in honor of the number he wore in baseball) for his childhood team.
“You think about the fact that it’s a full-circle moment. All parents with kids who play field hockey, there are a lot of cuts, a lot of teams… It’s a vicious circle and you don’t think a moment like this is going to happen. And now you see your son playing with the team he idolized when he was young, in such an iconic jersey… It’s going to be special.”
