When at a team bonding event in the game of hockey, always expect the mood to be kept “light.”
During the 2004-05 season, the Silvertips were enjoying a routine meal away from the rink, when fan favorite Torrie Wheat, in his second season as a Silvertip and would-be captain the following year, decided to lighten the mood with a little sauce.
Wheat, ending his five-year WHL career in 2005-06 and a part of two U.S. Division championship teams, went onto attend and play hockey at the Univ. of Calgary. He is currently living and working in the Calgary area.
