So today we got a whiff on Twitter that some news regarding Big Edzo were on the way from, well, Little Edzo:
I’ll ‘fess up: I enjoyed how the Twitterverse started making all sorts of jokes about him trying to steal a spot for the Leafs alumni game, as we were doing the same thing to Mike Modano about the Red Wings alumni game. Yet the news was even more exciting: Eddie joined Modano himself and Lou Lamoriello as the newest inductees into the United States Hall of Fame!
Blackhawks team historian Bob Verdi did an amazing piece on Eddie, so I won’t even try. Just go read that and weep.
My favorite part? His son’s totally precious tweet:
We’ll forgive him for the misspelling because the sentiment is so awesome. Congrats, Edzo!
