Carl Lindros, father of one of the newest members of the Hockey Hall of Fame, Eric Lindros, accepted the induction and delivered a speech on behalf of his son, despite Eric being healthy and present at the induction ceremony.
Carl beamed at the podium as he thanked the assembled crowd for the great honor.
“I’ve worked so hard to go where I am. This is just a culmination of the years of blood, sweat and tears that I’ve put into my son,” Lindros said, wiping tears away from his eyes as Eric looked on from the side stage.
“I did it. I can’t believe it, but I’ve finally reached the pinnacle,” he said.
