A Chip Off The Old Mess

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal:

Mark Messier’s eyes light up as he talks about the progress his 19-year-old son Lyon is making, playing on the blue-line for the junior Texas Tornado in the North American Hockey League. Some U.S. colleges are starting to look at his progeny.
“Lyon had his first knockout and his first fight the other night ... the old man was proud of him,” laughed the ex-Oilers star whose No. 11 will be raised to the Rexall Place rafters on Feb. 27.
“He caught a guy coming out of his zone with his head down and hit him on the chin with his shoulder and knocked him out. He said, ‘Dad, it was just like (R.J.) Umberger in the playoffs last year (Sabres defenceman Bryan Campbell nailing the Flyers forward)’ ” said Messier.
