Ducks Off the Ice by Adam Brady
Contact Us Comes Through Again

As you may or may not already know, one of my job responsibilities is periodically monitoring the emails that come to us through Contact Us on this website. And as you can imagine, when the team has lost a few games in a row and/or they trade away a popular player, the Contact Us emails can be ... let's just say intriguing. And as I'm sure you can also imagine, they are always well thought-out and impeccably written with perfect grammar, punctuation and capitalization.

Okay, maybe not.

But then there are those emails that make my day, a couple of which I've run in this blog before. The latest came from a man named Thomas Elwell and it read:

The little things ... On March 11th, upon arriving in Calgary to face off against the Flames the next day, your team graciously welcomed my son's Novice squad to view practice and meet the team post. I am not sure if this was completely cleared with all members but it happened and it changed the lives of several young boys, namely my 7-year-old son Owen.

You should be very proud of the young men that represent your organization and the city of Anaheim. Getz, Teemu, Jackman, Perry … a few amongst a fantastic group of guys that were genuinely kind to our boys. I just wanted your organization to know how much it was appreciated and thank your team for a moment that will last forever in the minds and hearts of 15 young boys (and us parents of course).
