It's safe to say that Florida's Stephen Weiss and Moody, Hound Central 5.0's roving Southeast correspondent, share a commonality -- the Plymouth Whalers of the Ontario Hockey League.
Weiss played for Plymouth before being drafted by the Panthers. Moody, a Michigan kid, is a big fan of the team. His collection includes pucks, cards and even a game-used visor.
This week, Moody added this pair of game-used socks and a puck, all signed by Weiss, as well as five cards, when he stopped by an informal workout for Panthers players at incredibleICE in Coral Springs.
"He recognizes me as the 'Whalers Guy' now," Moody writes. "I have been called worse, so I will accept it."
