JP Cote First NHL Point Earns Paul Kennedy First On-Air Hug

Tampa Bay Lightning defensemen Jean-Philippe Cote picked up his first NHL point in his first game since appearing eight games with the Montreal Candiens during the 2005-2006 season.

At intermission Lightning broadcaster Paul Kennedy presented him with the ceremonial puck and in exchange Cote gave Kennedy an on-air hug. After receiving the hug a gracious Kennedy said “I’ve never been hugged [on-air] but I appreciate that.”
