Interesting comments here... What, are only WASP names like "Smith" and "Hodgson" acceptable? Last I checked there are many in Canada from different backgrounds - not hard to expect some of them would take up hockey.
Abid has Persian background IIRC
I thought he was white, then I quickly realized he was brown. That's why I thought it was a weird name at first
on the Feb 25th week....
:50 he has a hit, and then a breakaway goal (separate plays)
2:50 sweet assist
March 02, 2008
anyways... just a little glimpse into him as a player.
I like the display of his speed and nose for the puck..
(he's only 6'0, but he's bigger than Thomas Hickey... his teammate (LA's pick last yr, #4)
I saw the Feb 25th highlight package and then came here to post... if anyone noticed any other impressive highlight package in the other weeks, please post em here... i don't wanna sift through all of em right now.
A long shot for the NHL right now, but he will definitely have the lower mainland pulling for him when he improves on his numbers next yr... i am anyway...
EDIT: Feb 18th...
:55 Very nice end to end rush goal off a faceoff.
2:33 great move and GW assist (not 100% sure its #9, but looks like him)
Just heard on the team he'll definitely be at camp with the rest of the hopefuls this summer.
