Canucks and Beyond
by Alanah McGinley on 11/20/08 at 03:53 PM ET
As noted in the Vancouver Sun:
The Vancouver Canucks have called up veteran defenceman Nolan Baumgartner from the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League.
Baumgartner, 32, leads all Moose defencemen with six points (1-5-6) in 12 games this season.
Oh, and “Baumer” also happens to be the name of J.J.‘s dog. If Nolan ever retires, an entire sector of the professional hockey industry—not to mention that dog’s self-esteem—might entirely collapse.
