Tomas Holmstrom wasn't sure what was going on at the
end of practice recently when the doors to the Zamboni entrance opened while the players were still on
But suddenly, a loud noise was heard and Henrik Zetterberg
rode in on a brand new snowmobile-complete with the number 96 on the side.
"I couldn't see what was going on," Holmstrom said.
"Turn around and there's a snowmobile out there and then I started reading the
sign. Nice. It's mine."
A sign on the front of the snowmobile let Holmstrom know the gift was for
1,000 career games.
"For sure that was nice of the boys to do," Holmstrom said.
"I got some nice teammates."
Teammates often give gifts in acknowledgement of major milestones. Holmstrom
was actually supposed to get his right before the All-Star break-the day after
the Montreal game-but
he missed six games and so didn't hit it until this week.
