Flashback: Yan and Paul Stastny with Dad Peter

Talk about a hockey family! In the early 80s, Czechoslovakian brothers Anton and Peter Stastny defected to Canada to join the Quebec Nordiques. They were followed the next year by another one of their brothers, Marian.

More than 25 years later, Peter's two sons, Paul and Yan, are playing in the NHL for Colorado and St.Louis, respectively. His two daughters, Katarina and Kristina, both played high level competitive tennis while attending University.

In that picture, taken in 1990, Peter's kids are visiting Slovakia for the first time, a few months after Peter returned to his home country for the first time since defecting. From left to right: Yan, Paul, Kristina, and Katarina.

Like Father, Like Son: Waaaaah!

On March 27, during a Québec Major Junior Hockey League playoff game that his team was trailing, Québec Remparts' goalie Jonathan Roy decided to take part in a brawl, skated the lenght of the ice and jumped on Chicoutimi Saguenéens' goalie Bobby Nadeau who, obviously, wasn't interested in fighting. After his outburst, Roy leaved the ice giving the highway salute to the crowd and made some crude post-game comments while interviewed.

Roy is the son of famed NHL Goalie Patrick Roy who also co-owns and coaches the Remparts. After the event, coach-daddy and goalie-son were both unapologetic and somewhat defiant, although Jonathan apologized two days later in the media.

Like father, like son? In some respects, obviously. Not in all, though, as it is unlikely that Jonathan will ever make the NHL unless his daddy has more pull than we credit him for.
