Making it to the NHL is a daunting task for any junior hockey player.
Very few make it to the NHL and even fewer manage to skate alongside their friends. Well it turns out Winnipeg Jets teammates Ondrej Pavelec, Michael Frolik and Jiri Tlusty are currently living that dream. The three men are all childhood friends and played their junior hockey together in the Czech Republic. The three were reunited following a late February trade that saw Tlusty join the Jets via the Carolina Hurricanes.
In honour of the three men reuniting and living their dream together, they decided to recreate a photograph from their junior playing days.
What an amazing road to have travelled to finally end up together.
