“It will cost you once, but after that, you will pay the draft.” This is how Martin summed up Rookie Dinner when he was an NHL player in St.-Louis.

No need to take his credit card to realize the cost of a St.-Louis Canadian rookie dinner. This evening is reserved for players.

“I do not know the amount. There is no exact number in my eyes, but I made the eyes bigger!

Cole Cowfield kept smiling even though he had probably put a larger amount on his credit card than during a traditional dinner at La Banquis on Rachel Street in Montreal.

Cowfield was part of a substantial group of seven rookies who were lucky enough to split the entire bill.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there was no rookie dinner last year. Cowfield, Jake Evans, Alexander Romanov, Michael Pazetta, Kale Clog, Corey Schuneman and Kaden Primou are lucky.

“It was a good evening,” Pazzetta said. Guys always tell you to remember your rookie dinner forever. We dressed up, it was funny. As a group, we enjoyed our day.

“I remember the whole evening, Coffeld added. I had a lot of fun with the guys. Exiting hockey also felt good.

To spice up the day a little, seven young men from CH spent the better part of the day walking the streets of Vancouver dressed as frogs.

Good moment
