Sunday, 2 June 2013
During the Marysville Dayze my slow-pitch team played against Carter Bancks of the Abbotsford Heart, who dawned a Calgary Flames jersey for 2 games during this past season (one of my favourite NHL teams!). When I first saw and heard his name, I couldn't believe it for two reasons. One why was someone with an NHL contract in Kimberley? Two, everyone that knew him (since he grew up in the area) treated him like he was any other person. So I really had to contain myself and not run up to him and ask for an autograph and treat him like a celebrity. So I just took to twitter:
Got to play against @NHLFlames prospect Carter Bancks in #marysville #slowpitch tourney. #KimberleyBut this lead me to check out his profile on NHL.com and the Flames have a nice video about him. And his latest after-game interview with Abbottsford shows that he is a genuine young man. I wish him all the best with his hockey career.
