Who are Leo Carlsson’s parents?
Over the years, Leo’s parents have watched him become one of the top hockey picks in the 2023 NHL Draft.
They’ve made several sacrifices along the way and would do anything to help their son succeed, including a last-minute 13-hour road trip to Nashville, Tennessee.
After arriving in New Jersey, his connecting flight to Nashville had to be canceled due to weather problems. So his family got into a minivan and drove 13 hours to make sure he got to the draft on time.
“I feel for him,” said striker Zach Benson about the situation The Associated Press.
“When we were playing Winnipeg, we did a couple of 14 hour bus rides overnight. I definitely feel sorry for him and hope he’s still in bed now.”
This isn’t the first time Leo has faced travel difficulties. Just a few weeks earlier, during the Stanley Cup finals in Las Vegas, Adam Fantilli revealed that he had problems with his luggage.
“When he went to Las Vegas, I knew he was busy there with his luggage and whatever was going there,” Fantilli explained via The Associated Press.
“Obviously he had to drive from New York to get here. I think he’s sleeping right now. Yes, I mean I feel for him.”
Due to the travel accident, Leo missed an appearance at the youth clinic and a session with reporters, but luckily his parents were able to take him to the Bridgestone Arena for his big day.
