An incredible email to Elite Prospects has gone viral.
The website, which compiles stats for hockey players around the globe, tweeted an email from a goalie asking for his stats to be deleted or a note to be added that read “mediocre career, but loves the boys and the boys love him.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

That’s the exact category I was in while I played high school sports. I was borderline atrocious, but I didn’t care.
I was just there for the journey, and I was okay with riding the pine. You need to know your role, and you need to become excellent at it.
This guy knew he was a backup and he was just around to drink some beers. If you’re not a supporter of that, then you probably hate freedom.
Major props to this unsung hero for giving us all a reason to laugh. This is the kind of stuff that reminds us how great the internet can be.
I hope this guy enjoyed every second of his time hanging with the boys and playing some puck.
