Ryan Suter: For My Dad

Ryan Suter writes about his late father, Bob, in a piece for The Player's Tribune, and tells the story of bringing his dad's Olympic gold medal to show-and-tell as well as what Bob meant to his community. From the article:

"It’s been three years now since his passing, and it still sucks. It still hurts. Every day, I wish he was here. He was a great person who cared so much about his family and hockey and helping people get better. I would give anything to be hosting a tournament at Cap Ice, sweeping the floor with my dad at 11 o’clock at night, and walking out of there knowing that the locker rooms were clean for the kids coming in at 6 a.m. the next morning. To us, that was happiness. I would give anything to have that moment again." - Ryan Suter
