Photos: Jeff Carter squeezes into jersey from his youth during day with the Cup

Aug 24, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

Jeff Carter‘s day with the Stanley Cup probably produces images that, for some, might be surprising – perhaps even embittering.

(Sorry Philadelphia Flyers fans. Extra apologies, Columbus Blue Jackets fans.)

Still, most should get a chuckle out of the sight of the 27-year-old sniper squeezing into a jersey he used to wear when he was seven. Philip “Keeper of the Cup” Pritchard shares that amusing image:


(You can’t quite sing “Fat Guy in a little coat,” but some of the spirit’s there.)

The Royal Half points out the potential symbolism of Carter going on stage with a bad named “Second Chance.”

    Well, I’ll never claim to be a fan of the guy, but I respect a man who remembers where he started. He was just one of the millions of Canadian kids playing hockey back then. It’s cool to see him acknowledge those roots.

    Yes, it is amazing that a 27-year-old man can fit into a jersey he wore at 7, got to give kudos to Carter for being in outstanding shape.

      You can squeeze into a hockey and football jersey A LOT easier than a baseball uni 20 years later. Just remember those sweaters are made to go over pads and are far from form fitting. It’s not that amazing.

    Emanuel Lewis could do it, and he is pushing 50, so I’m not impressed.
