I’m catching up on uploading all my game photos (thank you Olympic break), when I noticed Michal Handzus’ gloves for the first time.
Instead of the usual “last name, playing number” on Handzus’ gloves, they are inscripted “Remember 38” (you can see it better in the detail). #38 was Pavol Demitra’s number, Handzus’ Slovakian Teammate. Demitra was killed in the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl plane crash in 2011.
EXCUSE ME, I MUST CRY NOW
