On New Years Eve, the Grand Rapids Griffins played the Milwaukee Admirals in AHL hockey, but the story was happening off the ice. Admiral player Pierre-Cedric Labrie got the call early Sunday morning that his partner, Jana Pieuze-Roy (Yes, THAT Roy) as in labor. He couldn't get a flight out, and was running out of options.
Labrie was told to call Griffins goalie Tom McCollum, who is know to be a good guy throughout the league, to see if he could help.
McCollum was happy to help a player who had been giving him fits, and lent him his pick up truck to drive through the snowstorm to make sure he was there in time to see the birth of his child.
