this is Geoff Paukovich and Paul Stastny in 2005 at DU. this was the year that they won the NCAA, again, after winning in 2004. Paukovich, well i called him Paucko, was my coach one summer at Gwozdecky hockey camp. he was like a big brother. he took off my name tag on my helmet the first day and changed it to “Janie’s Got A Gun” :) Paucko was my favorite and i guess now he’s playing minors in Las Vegas.
i guess this post is just to shine some light on one of my childhood heroes, and to thank him for making me smile all of those days on the ice!
