How do you not smile when you see the smile of Lukas Duncan-Reed?
Travis Konecny provided plenty of smiles by signing a Flyers jersey for Duncan-Reed, a 12-year-old from Las Vegas who loves the 23-year-old All-Star winger.
"He's my favorite Flyer!" a surprised and thrilled Duncan-Reed said two days ago in a video sent to Flyers senior director of public relations and communications Zack Hill. "It's amazing!"
Duncan-Reed, who plays center for the Vegas Jr. Golden Knights 12A squad, sure has the Konecny-like energy and spirit.
Konecny, the Flyers' energizer bunny, has been one of the team's most consistent players in 2019-20. Through 66 games, he has recorded career highs in assists (37) and points (61), while he's only one marker away from a new personal best of 25.
His birthday was a day before the NHL suspended the 2019-20 season because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Without playing, Konecny has still delivered smiles.
