Has there ever been a more aptly-named player?

hahaha . what are the chances ?

The chances that a Wheat Kings fanatic with the last name King,

convincing his wife to name him after his team,

then forcing the kid into hockey at an early age,

the kid having the skill to be pretty good at it,

and making it up to the junior level for his hometown team?

Puh-lease...

:)

There was a mother in Lancashire in the early 1960s who was a big cricket fan, and named her son after the great Australian left handed batsman, Neil Harvey. He went on to play cricket for Lancashire and England.

That sounds more like the name they should have given to the team mascot! Hilarious.

He must have been named after the team in some way. I have to agree with that.

Up until now my two favorite sports player names were a Philadelphia Eagles player in the mid 70's named Will Wynn and Oakland A's pitcher Josh Outman.
