from Justin A. Cohn of the Journal Gazette,
Despite being a remarkable player, Robbie Laird only got to one NHL game.
He’s more than made up for that in his post-playing career. He hoisted the Stanley Cup for a second time Friday as a senior pro scout with the Los Angeles Kings.
“It’s amazing. I feel very fortunate to be a part of this organization,” said Laird, a Fort Wayne resident and former coach and player with the Komets....
“We have a great group of staff members here, and when you win something like this, it draws you closer together,” Laird said in a telephone interview Saturday as he prepared to go to a celebratory breakfast with other members of the franchise.
“When you’re part of a championship team, I think you remember what it took to win and all the hours you put in. The relationships usually last forever. It feels great, and it’s amazing what the guys accomplished.”
