NH High School Hockey Champ is Now Stanley Cup Champion
Trying to look for a 'silver lining' in that hideous Game 7 loss for The Bruins isn't easy. But a Pinkerton Academy grad hoisting the silver of Lord Stanley? Even the most depressed B's fan has to admit that's really cool.
Congrats Zach Sanford
The 24 year old left winger was born in Salem, MA and played his entire high school career right down the road in Derry NH. In fact, he was a big part of the 2012 High School Champion Astros team.
Last night in Boston, he scored his FIRST post-season career goal in the grandest fashion, sneaking the puck past Tuukka Rask to seal The St. Louis Blues 4-1 victory.
This gave the franchise it's first and only Stanley Cup Championship in it's 51 year existence. (The Bruins have 6 championships, yes, I'm still very bitter about this loss)
It's easy to smile though when you realize that this NH High School Champion's name will be etched on The Stanley Cup for the rest of time!
