Dads Take Flight

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

The Wings are scheduled to fly from Detroit to Dallas this afternoon, accompanied mostly by dads but also the occasional brother or mentor. The trip concludes with a three-day stay in Phoenix. After last year’s trip, which took the team around Florida, Zetterberg said his dad came away impressed with the hectic schedule of a trip—play a game and then immediately travel to the next city. Brett Lebda’s dad was blown away by something entirely different.
“He said he was surprised at how much we ate,” Lebda said. “He said we’re always eating—whenever we get on the plane, we eat; whenever we get home from pregame skate, we’re eating, or we’re eating breakfast. We’re always eating or sleeping or on the road, and I said, ‘That’s the way it goes.’ “
