For a couple of reasons, and neither include the stick and puck he signed Tuesday, Atlanta's Eric Perrin should serve as a good role model for young hockey players.
One, he's living proof that hard work and hustle are just as important as skill in becoming an NHL player.
Two, he's one of the nicer players in the league.
Maybe he's nicer down here in Humidity Bay, where he won a Stanley Cup with the Lightning, but I doubt it. He seems pretty genuine.
