We receive a number of emails during the season, but by far our favorites come from the younger hockey fans.
One San Jose 5th grader asked why the Sharks always lose in the playoffs? [We have no answer.]
A Canadian 3rd grader wanted Owen Nolan to tell one of his classmates that they met once. [We forwarded that email to the official site.]
Yesterday we received an email from a young fan asking: "Can girls play?"
Yes, they can.
Manon Rheaume became the first woman to play in a major professional sport when she made an exhibition start for the Lightning against the Blues on September 23, 1992.
