As a kid, Senators forward Curtis Lazar really wanted to play for the Senators.
Curtis Lazar is living the dream.
The Senators forward and native of British Columbia grew up pulling for his current team, so much that he modified a hockey card at the expense of former Senator Marian Hossa.
Lazar was digging through old stuff today and shared what he called a “custom” hockey card from his childhood, featuring a pretty good cut-and-paste job and what appears to be some tape. It's pretty cute.
5'1", 100 pounds? That's awesome. He even took credit for Hossa's hat trick from November 2002.
And look how it worked out. Ottawa drafted Lazar 17th overall in 2013, and he just finished his rookie year with the team, contributing 15 points in 67 games.
Now let's see how he goes about racking up those stats...
