Wayne told him that he thinks Bill Thomas is a gifted goal scorer and looks forward to seeing him play. He obviously has confidence in the kid, as Wayne put him out there for the shootout.
What an awesome experience that must be for a parent. Because I see his father every day, I can live vicariously through him!
Not that Pittsburgh will ever rival Boston ... but is cool to see
Pittsburgh kids make it to the NHL.
All another notch for Mario's legacy in our area.
