A number of players taking part in this week’s camp have ties to NHL players and coaches, including Team Black defenseman Brendan Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald aims to follow in the footsteps of his brothers, father and numerous cousins in reaching the NHL ranks. First, there are his brothers, Casey and Ryan, who skated together at Boston College before entering the Buffalo Sabres and Boston Bruins organizations, respectively. Then, there is their father, Tom, who skated 17 seasons in the NHL and is now the assistant general manager with the New Jersey Devils. Among the Fitzgerald’s cousins with NHL and U.S. ties are the Tkachuk’s – Keith, Matthew and Brady – and the Hayes brothers, Kevin and Jimmy.
