Garrett Meurs of the Whalers came to Orchard Hills Elementary School which is my school.
I knew that one of the Whalers was coming because I saw it on their website but I did not know who was going to come.
I brought my Whalers yearbook to have the player sign it if he came in our class.
Then it was Garrett Meurs who came into my classroom and that was cool because he is on the cover of the yearbook and he signed it right on the front for me. He asked me if I left the yearbook at school and I said no I just brought it in special for that day. He was nice.
He signed autographs for all the kids and he went to other classes too. All the kids liked it.
At games, Garrett always slaps my hand at the tunnel. Every single time I am there he does it. Some of the players don't do it always but Garrett always does.
Garrett is pretty good and scores a lot of goals. My dad told me Garrett is entering the NHL draft this year and he will be drafted by an NHL team but I would like him to stay with the Whalers a little while longer.
I put up a picture of me and Garrett and a picture of Garrett walking around in our school. I got these pictures from the Whalers website and I told my dad about it.
