Blake Geoffrion is best known as a Hobey Baker Award winner at Wisconsin and the NHL's first fourth-generation player _ he's the grandson of the late Bernie "Boom Boom" Geoffrion. The forward also is the first player from Tennessee to make it to the NHL.
"Wow..what a day...it's bitter-sweet, going to miss my hometown of Nashville, but going to where it all started with my family...MONTREAL!!!" he wrote on Twitter.
"So Boomer, I'll take. That's pretty cool," Geoffrion said.
