Breaking Into the NHL… at 30

From Bob McKenzie at TSN:

I saw a tweet from the Florida Panthers that Bracken Kearns will be making his NHL debut tonight and I cannot tell a lie.

I said, who the heck is Bracken Kearns?

My first thought was, I wonder if he’s any relation to Dennis Kearns. And, as fate, would have it, yes, indeed he is the son of the former NHL defenceman who played 10 seasons and more than 600 regular-season games with the Vancouver Canucks in the 1970s.

But, get, this, Bracken Kearns is making his NHL debut tonight and he’s 30 years old.

“It’s a really nice story,” Panthers’ assistant GM Mike Santos said. “He’s one of those guys who has just worked so hard for everything.”
