Luc's Jersey Retirement

So glad I got a chance to be a part of this big night. I've watched Luc forever. He took the time to address each and every former player, coach friend etc that showed up for him and even a special note to people who couldn't make it.
Luc really is a special person. He is one of the last good old time hockey players. Bob Miller said it best during the game last night "Some of the newer players just aren't accessible like the old guys were. Luc has always made himself available to his fans." Staying late after practice to sign jerseys, photos, pucks and to take pictures with fans. Staying later than any other player at the Player Meet and Greet sessions - just so a fan doesn't feel left out. He truly is a great player and we were all 'lucky' to get the chance to watch him all of these years.

So, some pictures. Not the greatest, but it was hard to get a good shot with everyone leaning out in front of me. We were lined up in two lines along the edge of the carpet. As people were announced, we were supposed to be paparazi and take lots of shots. I had one greedy guy in front of me who leaned way out each time so a lot of my shots were last minute ones.
