Oh boy, you didn't mention anything he accomplished off the ice (including in the classroom). This nitwit is going to have a fit and spew more of his keyboard diarrhea on the board now. Thanks.

Don't feed the 'tard.

But first in command for the all new nazi SS bunker, after the mean russki's killed all the other guys.

I am pretty sure President Obama played for Columbia University, but I am unable to legally view his playing records, or his stats. Can somebody make a request for release of documents under the freedom of information act to at least find out if he ever scored a hat trick.

Tyler Hirsch - skated full speed into an empty net at the Xcel Energy Center after the completion of a game MN lost and all players had already left the ice.

Jeff Frazee is a close second for being shown drinking long islands on the Fox9 news in the twin cities as the station discovered much to everyone's shock and surprise that underage hockey players drink.
