Sure, we all like his energy and his willingness to fight and his general super-toughness.
But it’s stories like this that are making me warm up to Krys Barch’s personality.
With it being Friday the 13th, I asked Krys Barch how he ended up with the No. 13.
He said when he was a kid, he wore the numbers 10 and 3, and pretty much settled in on 10. However, when he came to Dallas 10 was taken (Brenden Morrow), and 3 was also gone (Stephane Robidas), so he went for 13.
Then Barch added, “Oh yeah, and my son was born on the 13th, so that’s a good sign.”
Really, I asked, what year?
“No, today, this morning at 4,” Barch replied.
It appears Kane Kenneth Barch entered the world on Friday, March 13, 2009. My guess is he might someday put on the ol’ man’s number and believe it is actually pretty darned lucky.
Oh, by the way, Barch played last night and practiced today. That’s hockey, as they say up in Canada.
