A lot of fans around the league don't know who Kevin Westgarth is, but there's a reason this Princeton grad is so involved in the CBA talks. [Globe and Mail]
Wesgarth also participated in a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" session with David Backes and Mathieu Schneider. They couldn't discuss much about the NHLPA's next move, but there are some personal gems:
-Kevin, my wife (Carey-Jo) claims she was in the musical Greece with you in high school, and you were Danny, and you were great. Is there any truth to this? She was shocked when she passed by the TV and saw you on the screen! Big congrats from the two of us!
-There is truth to this. Thank god there weren't any camera phones back then. KW
