In the meantime

Every time I see Cap Raeder, an assistant coach for the Tampa Bay Lightning, I chide myself for forgetting to bring the work-in-progress University of New Hampshire jersey.

In 1974, Raeder was an All-American goalie for the Wildcats. If you're a UNH hockey fan like me, Cap's a huge deal.

Well, I missed another opportunity for the jersey Thursday when I saw Raeder outside the Devils' team hotel. Thankfully, though, I had something else for him -- the American-born goalie stick. He played for Team USA in the inaugural Canada Cup in 1976.

Sooner or later, I'll have Raeder sign the UNH jersey. When? Who knows?
