Will Blake Geoffrion Follow Family Footprints?

from Dirk Hoag of On The Forecheck,

With Blake Geoffrion expected to sign his entry-level NHL contract soon, the Nashville Predators are going to welcome the most heralded rookie in franchise history….

When he eventually makes his debut with the Nashville Predators, he will become a 4th-generation NHL player. His father Danny was a 1st-round draft choice by the Montreal Canadiens and played three seasons with various teams, while his grandfather (Bernie “Boom Boom” Geoffrion) and great-grandfather (Howie Morenz) stand among the all-time titans of the sport….

Has anyone ever entered the world of professional sports with such an accomplished family tree, and the personal awards to back it up?
