View 317: Brian Leetch

As a long time fan of the National Hockey League (NHL), getting to meet and photograph special guests of the Syracuse Crunch is a huge thrill.  Last weekend, the Crunch brought a two time NHL Defensemen of the Year, the first American to win Playoff Most Valuable Player and a Stanley Cup Champion to the War Memorial Arena in downtown Syracuse, New York.  He played for my father’s favorite NHL team, the New York Rangers and his name is Brian Leetch.

I photographed Mr. Leetch throughout the evening as he greeted a very enthusiastic crowd, dropped the ceremonial puck, signed hundreds of autographs for most of the game and later, after the game, was interviewed by Crunch Play by Play announcer Dan D’Uva in the post game radio show.
