Canes Country Pays Tribute to Hedican

Cory Lavalette of SB Nation blog Canes Country paid tribute to Hedican’s career Wednesday, telling the story of how a once dominant video game character became a real-life asset to the Hurricanes during their Stanley Cup run:

I recalled the pixelated blur of Hedican shooting up and down my 20-inch screen in my dorm room, embarrassing opponents with elusive dekes and mind-numbing speed. But I knew that, despite my love affair with Digi-Bret, Carolina was getting a reliable defender who could contribute as a puck mover on the back end.

But could Hedican the video game character make Gretzky’s head bleed for Super Fan 99?
