Truth be told the smooch came as a little bit of a surprise for Drouin. But, hey, it was OK in the moment. After all, who’s Drouin to rain on anyone’s parade?
“(Fournier) likes to kiss all the time and at the time it was alright we were in mid celebration, but right now, maybe not,” said Drouin with a chuckle on Friday night, just after he was through hoisting the President Cup. (x)
Why is no one quoting the rest of this article?
Konrad Abeltshauser figures last year Randy Gazzola topped the list.
But now that his former teammate has moved on, the Halifax Mooseheads’ veteran defenceman says their co-captain Stefan Fournier is now hands down the squad’s best kisser.
They say practice makes perfect, and Fournier, according to Abeltshauser, tops the Herd’s pecking order.
“Fournier gets pretty into it I’d say,” said the German defenceman with a laugh.
But Abeltshauser wasn’t going to deny ever getting into the action, either.
“Then again there aren’t many guys on our team who haven’t gotten a kiss from one of us yet, and that’s OK,” he said.
THERE IS A PECKING ORDER. THIS IS APPARENTLY A THING IN HALIFAX.
This is pretty great.
HEARTS IN MY EYES.
