“Someone just showed me my dad’s reaction. He’s usually [grumpy], but tonight he was in a better mood,” joked Sekac, having watched his father, Jiri Sr., celebrate his son’s inaugural NHL goal in person. “He was actually happy! My whole family helped me and I’m really thankful to all of them. They’re a big part of my life and that’s why I’m here now. It’s an amazing feeling that they could see my first NHL goal. My dad will probably not sleep for another five days.”
Always great to see a reaction like this. True hockey dad!
