The only player that matters in my house to my 4 yr. old is Jackson LaCombe. He tossed her a hockey puck at the start of the season at a game and now she is his #1 fan. When I watched the Gophers all season on TV she would look for #2 on the ice and yell “there he is”. And she named two of her new stuffed bears Big Jackson and Little Jackson. We reached out to the “U” in Feb. asking if there is any way we can pay for or get something like a signed picture or puck from Jackson for her birthday. Kudos to the “U”, Jackson and Brian Deutsch. Brain got back to us with an email of the video of Jackson wishing Abs a happy birthday and a game prior to her bday, he met up with my wife and I at a game and gave us a signed flag by Jackson. It made her birthday and all I can do is wish and pray Jackson comes back for one more year… LoL!!!

I love stories like these
