Doubt much comes of it, but can't hurt to bring him in. I grew up in the same town as the Pandolfos. Played some street hockey with Jay when I was a kid. He was 5-6 years older than us, saw a couple of us out playing one day and just joined. He was a big deal at that point even, so it was pretty cool. Was really nice and took it easy on us, though he had a howitzer for a shot and unleashed it a few times.

Knew his younger sister and brother better than I did Jay, but they were all good people, nice family. I also remember when the Shawn Bates-led Medford team knocked the Jay Pandolfo-led Burlington team out of the Super 8 in, I think it was 91. Panda was a big deal at the time, one of the better HS players in the state, but Bates was hands down the better player at that level.
