When we traded Matt Duchene and got Samuel Girard back, I didn’t realize our new tiny, unemotional defenseman was such a bad boy. Then he went and wrecked his sports car over the summer, and I began to get an inkling.
I mean, if you follow Sammy G on Instagram, you’ll see him literally hacking at the ice in his Quebec driveway. (Private account, but he seems to let Avs fans follow.)
If you get the chance, peep his new mohawk. Bad. Boy. He’d be so much fun to be around.
Plus, if I was quarantined with Sam Girard, I’d get to hang out with his dog, named Tornade after G’s signature spin-o-rama move:
I doubt I could pick up Tornade like Sammy in that picture, but I’d give him plenty of pettings.
