Sometimes paying for a premium seat is worth the price.
A Citizen reader, who was at the game Tuesday night between the Ottawa Senators and Detroit Red Wings, had a close encounter with Henrik Zetterberg during warm-ups.
Ryan sent in the following message:
“My buddy Mike and I were down against the glass for the warms ups last night in the Red Wings end… he had his beer sitting on the up against the glass as we were taking pics. When Hank was done stretching, he got up and banged into the boards a couple times.”
“In doing so, Mike’s pint went smashing to the floor. We knocked on the glass to show him what happened as I got a kick out of it. Zetterberg started laughing! A few minutes later, he went over to the bench, grabbed one of his brand new game sticks and autographed it saying: “Sorry! I owe u one! (with his signature.) He skated over and tossed it over the glass to us! How classy is that guy!!! Amazing!”
