I remember giggy went 1-1-1, and got the whalers post game interview tradition. Forslund would intentionally drag out the interview a little bit until the other guys drilled whoever got interviewed with a shaving cream pie in the face on TV. Giggy just wiped his eyes and kept talking with a **** eating grin on his face.

It's how I know about these call ups. Unless there was an aspect of that I don't remember than he's wrong. It was 96 or 97.

Ps he's actually credited with 8 that year. That I don't remember. Maybe they had him early games before demotion, or called him up after his junior year ended. Who knows, maybe I'm senile.
As I recall, they brought him up after his junior year ended, so he technically wasn't a mid junior season call up. At least I think that's what Chuck was getting at.
