Students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School are competing in the USA Hockey National Championships in Minnesota. After giving the “Let’s play hockey” call last night, MSD students were greeted by none other than David Backes. No. 42 is recovering from a laceration and did not play against Minnesota, I can’t think of a better way for him to spend his time than to meet with some of the MSD kids.

David Backes is a great guy on and off the ice. Taking time to meet with the MSD students shows how great his character is.
