Luongo gets his 'C'
The Vancouver captain, forbidden by NHL rules from wearing the letter on his jersey because he is a goaltender, sported a new C on his mask Sunday night as the Canucks hosted Anaheim in the final 2008-09 pre-season game for both clubs.
"It can stand for whatever he wants it to stand for," said Vancouver general manager Mike Gillis, when asked if the C stood for Canucks or captain.
Serious business indeed.
My guess is that, at some point, the league just lets goaltenders wear letters on their jerseys. What's the harm?
