Travis Hamonic told his daughter he’d score a goal for her during her first game. He kept his promise.
Calgary Flames defenseman Travis Hamonic and wife Stephanie brought their daughter to her first NHL game on Saturday. Eight-month-old Charlie was a good luck charm for her dad, who promised to score a goal for her –– and he did just that.
During the first intermission, Hamonic spoke with Sportsnet’s Ryan Leslie. “It’s exactly how you drew it up,” Leslie said. “You bring your daughter to your first NHL game, she’s here, it’s a good luck charm, you acknowledge her in the warm-up, and then boom: dad scores a goal.”
“I tried to promise her a goal,” Hamonic responded. “I’m not sure how often I can do that, but Charlie’s the love of our lives, my wife and I, Steph. And to have her here and to see that, I don’t score a lot of goals, so that’s something she’s going to hold onto forever.”
