26 is not too flashy, it's a working man's number, and that's a reflection of my playing style.
Loved Glen Wesley! Was so happy to see him finally win the cup.....just like Bourque, but too bad they had to leave Boston to win it .

Anyway.........I wear #16 in honor of my hero growing up Rick Middleton. I had the pleasure of playing on the same line with him last year and it was one of the highlights of my life!!!

Nice to see another Rhode Islander by the way
