'A Wonderful Young Man'

Wednesday, 10.30.2013 / 1:43 PM

As much as young Hampus Lindholm has looked good on the ice so far this season, he’s also been impressive away from it, with a demeanor and an intelligence well beyond his 19 years. He also apparently made a significant impact with some fans in the area, according to another nice Contact Us email we received this week:

I wanted to drop a message to Hampus Lindholm, if possible. This past July, my husband and I met him and some other players at the Doubletree Inn in Orange. My father had a severe stroke and we were dealing with his problems at UCI Medical Center. At the hotel, we met these young players. All of them were so kind to us.

Hampus was such a wonderful young man. Whenever I saw him, he offered to get me a chair to sit in (as I was tired), he offered to get me something to drink and he always asked about my Dad. I wanted you to know what a great ambassador off the ice Hampus is and to somehow tell him that my dad has made a remarkable recovery.

If you could somehow relay this message to him, that would be appreciated. I also wanted to let the Ducks organization know that he is a great representative for the team off the ice; his character is top notch. We will not forget his kindness ever during a very difficult time. We watch him play when the games are telecast and are so proud of him. I thank you in advance, and if you could let Hampus know, things are much better and we are his biggest fans!

Thank you,

Jeff and Kathy Wohlford
