Nashville Predators sign hockey legacy Blake Geoffrion to an entry level contract
As the son of Montreal Canadien Danny Geoffrion, grandson of legendary Bernie "Boom Boom" Geoffrion and great-grandson of three time Hart trophy winner Howie Morenz, Blake's roots run deep. Not to mention that both grandfathers are also NHL Hall-of-Famers.
Geoffrion's signing with the Predators is not only another story to add to his family history but a major coup for local hockey. As mentioned in the link above and in many other articles today, Blake is the first native Tennessean to be drafted and signed to an NHL contract. Who says hockey doesn't work in the South?! By the looks of the turnout at his signing this afternoon, the Brentwood-born forward is already generating plenty of buzz.
Welcome to the team, Blake!
