An American's Idol

McKeen's Hockey had a Q&A with top prospect Mac Bennett (drafted by the Canadiens in June and currently playing with Cedar Rapids Rough Riders of the USHL). Asked which NHL player he looks up to, he says:
"Growing up, Mathieu Schneider. We were family friends. My dad actually coached him when he was in Rhode Island. He was my idol growing up. I wanted to be him. He's old now, but he's still able to play. To be able to keep himself in the shape that he's in, it's amazing."
Mathieu totally has my permission to slap the kid for the "he's old now" comment.

(And yes, I feel shame for that lame headline.)
