He's true to his school

It's no secret that Toronto's Jason Blake doesn't enjoy signing autographs. Oh, sure, he'll stop when asked, but he usually has a pained expression upon his face.

It's funny, though, when you drop a name that means something to him. No, I'm not talking about a favorite cousin or an old friend.

What I am talking about is his alma mater, the University of North Dakota.

Making his way back from the Leafs' morning skate earlier today, Blake tried pulling away from a handful of hounds until I asked if he would sign this North Dakota puck.

As you can see, it worked.
