Lee Sweatt got true rookie treatment today. He's a 5' 9'', 195 pound defense-man; you don't see that much. As Luongo said in the post game though, "he's built like a little fire hydrant". In the dressing room before the game they chanted RUDY RUDY! They even did the old "hey Lee, lead us in the pre-game warm up" and then nobody followed him out on the ice. But there is a reason for me saying this because the Colorado College d-man scored his first NHL goal in his very first NHL game! It ended up being the game winning goal in the 2-1 win over Nashville! That's what hard work gets you, and I'm looking forward to seeing him play in the future!
P.S - I like him even more because he wore my favorite number (57)
GO NUCKS GO!
