Nashville Fans’ Campaign to Sign Kevin Weekes

Kevin Weekes is a good friend of inGoal Magazine and one of the nicest guys you’ll meet in hockey. So when I saw a campaign starting (via Preds on the Glass) to have him signed as the Nashville backup this year, I had to share it with our readers. Jeremy Gover at Section303.com wrote a nice piece on the idea and if you discount the fact that Kevin has been off the ice for a year, much of it makes sense. I know that for most guys that year would be huge, but Kevin is a fitness fanatic and I have no doubt he could strap on the pads today.

This is no Rory Fitzpatrick all-star write in campaign. Jeremy is quite serious. What do you think?

About The Author

David is one of the founders of InGoal Magazine which he began in 2009. Of course he finds time for some goaltending of his own as well, and despite his age, clings desperately to the idea that some NHL team will call him to play for them - though in his mid-forties (OK, late 40s) it'll likely be for a practice when everyone else on their depth chart has the flu and the shooter tutor has gone in for repairs.

  1. I’d vote for him, anything to get him off the air. He’s a great guy, a decent goalie, but not a great commentator at all. I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels this way.

  2. He was always an entertaining goalie to watch, but contrary to Jase’s opinion … I love him on the air! I like that a former goalie is on a major sports network broadcast team and is relatively ‘new’ and younger(thinking of and comparing to Darren Pang here). I especially love that Weekes brings a bit of the kind of random and nicknaming humor to a broadcast similar to John Buccigross and Barry Melrose had when they did NHL2Night.
