Praise for Rush players

Justin A. Cohn
The Journal Gazette

I got this note from a fan, and I wanted to pass it along.

"My daughter and I said hello to (the Rapid City players) when they came into (McDonald's on Friday night). While they were not in the best of spirits, they somehow knew we were Fort Wayne fans and they were all very cordial and nice. Scott Wray and Colt King even stopped to talk with us for a few minutes. Gio Flamminio did the same on the way out.

"People can say what they want about the opposing team, but those three are classy guys off the ice. They didn't have to do what they did, but they did.

"My daughter wanted a picture with a Rapid City player, and Colt King was gracious enough to oblige. Classy guy off of the ice."
