The title of this post was stolen from an hfboards post, but it’s a nice title for tonight. Rob Schremp has already played in the NHL, but it was one game and the team was running out the string (seriously. He played April 5, 2007) at the end of an awful 20 game streak.
He played quite a bit, 17 shifts and 13:50 in total. 2 shots on goal, nothing that would get a crooked number on the boxcar stats.
Schremp’s just a kid, and even though he’s a smartass this has to be a thrill. He may step right into the lineup and get his chance, a real one, on a team choosing their next generation of players right this instant.
I bet he could get to Vancouver from Springfield on adrenaline.
