With their first round pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, the New Jersey Devils selected center Stefan Matteau, son of NHL veteran Stephane Matteau. The same Stephane Matteau, in fact, who had the game-winning goal that knocked the Devils out of the 1994 Stanley Cup playoffs. The irony wasn't lost on the son:
"I met with the Devils a few times, but obviously knowing the history of my name, I guess it's surprising," Matteau said. "But I couldn't be more thrilled."
