@NHLhistorygirl had this great, undated twitter story but I didn't feel it was quite enough to blog about until some more Darius Kasparaits news broke too.
1. The #Pens were in Calgary, Darius Kasparaitis was walking ahead of teammates, trying to find restaurant. Got busted jaywalking.— Jen (@NHLhistorygirl) December 9, 2016
2. Cop asked him to sit in squad car while he wrote ticket, Darius refused, saying he was waiting for teammates. They all got in back seat— Jen (@NHLhistorygirl) December 9, 2016
3. Darius then messed with the cop, telling him Brad Werenka was from Mexico with no visa, at first cop was threatening to arrest them all.— Jen (@NHLhistorygirl) December 9, 2016
4. Somehow Darius got the cop to deliver them to the restaurant by the end, everyone is laugh-crying and the cop got tickets to the game.— Jen (@NHLhistorygirl) December 9, 2016
Classic Kasparaits. One gets the feeling shenanigans like this went down all the time around old #11.
A tweet from another former Penguin, Tyler Kennedy , was what caught my eye. Does TK hint that he and Kasparaitis are going to be teammates in Febraury for the alumni game between Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers alumni? Sure looks like it.
Rosters haven't been formally announced yet but stay tuned. Given the awesome turnout in 2011, it reasons to figure plenty of awesome names and players will be back in black and gold for one more time.
