This doesn't happen too often, but when it does, it's certainly worthy of a post.
Tampa Bay's Stephane Veilleux, one of the Lightning's free-agent signings this summer, was in a hurry following an informal workout earlier this week in Brandon. Yes, he said, he'd sign autographs.
We'd have to wait, though, until he got back from his errand.
True to his word, Veilleux, who began his NHL career in Minnesota, returned to the Ice Sports Forum about 40 minutes later. And, yes, he signed, even apologizing for making us wait.
It was only after watching him leave again -- after signing for three people -- did I realizie that he came back to specifically keep a promise.
Like I said, that doesn't happen too often.
