Favorite Things: Jeff Halpern

Oh Halpie….he was a favorite here at The Shootout.  And I mean, a huge favorite.  He was one of those players that had a huge impact on the game, whether he was scoring, assisting on goals or helping to defend his own net.  And did I mention he’s Jewish?  Because he is.

He was a solid player and such a great guy to play on a team with.  He knew when to be serious and when to kid around with teammates.  (This can be seen in the On The Ice videos as well as an older video of him pieing Ovechkin during an interview.)

Sadly, we lost Halpie when we traded for Brad Richards.  After he left us, he was named captain of the Men’s National Hockey Team.  Sadly, Halpern sustained a knee injury while playing in May and will be out a few months still. :(
