ZoomZoom18 Posted March 25, 2009 Report Share Posted March 25, 2009 I thought this may be an interesting topic to discuss. I don't believe we've done a topic like this one. Which NHLers (or former) have you been able to meet or would like to meet? In Indianapolis, I got to a chance to meet Brian Noonan (formerly of the Rangers and Blackhawks), Darren Pang (we all know him I'm sure), Glen Featherstone, Jani Hurme, Bruce Cassidy, and Todd White. I thought White and Panger were the nicest of the group, but all were pretty friendly. In Phoenix, my wife and I got a chance to go to the Coyotes game night for their Coyotes Charities back in the 2006-07 season. I did get a picture and a chance to meet Wayne Gretzky. Gretz was nice, a quiet guy, and a lot bigger than I thought he'd be. He stood in line for about two hours signing autographs for anyone who wanted them. That was a big thrill. I also got to meet Roenick (a real nice guy and seemed great with the fans), Jovanovski (whom I got to sign his rookie card), Yanic Perreault, Mattias Tjarnqvist, Mike Ricci, Curtis Joseph, Mike Zigomanis, Matt Jones (whom seemed quite surprised that there was someone in attendance who had a Jones jersey personalized...I didn't have the heart to tell him it was because I share his last name), Steven Reinprecht, Oleg Saprykin, Kevyn Adams, and Georges Laraque (dude is one of the nicest guys I've ever met). Personally, I'd like to meet Yzerman, Lafontaine, Ovechkin, Lemieux, Budaj, Sakic, and Smyth someday as well as more of the Stars players.
