Daws at centre of ‘crazy’ hockey oddity

Tony Saxon/Guelph Today

By Tony Saxon,

Nico Daws was the unwitting focal point of a pretty bizarre moment in Guelph Storm history Saturday night in Windsor.

Daws was named the third star of a game that officially he didn’t play a second in.

He did play, making an emergency appearance and stopping the Spitfires’ Cody Morgan on a penalty shot in overtime, but that was it for the night.

“I’ve never in my life seen that before. That was crazy,” said Daws on Monday.

Making it even goofier, Daws and the two starting goalies in the game were chosen as the three stars, likely the first time that’s ever happened.

“They told me when I came off that I was the third star and they wanted me to go out and take a lap around, but I’m not going to do that after a loss,” Daws said of a game that the Storm eventually lost in a shootout.
