Coyotes’ Keith Yandle writes ‘pray for Boston’ across his skate (Picture)
Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Keith Yandle is known for having a pretty good sense of humor. The 26-year-old was supposedly at the center of the whole championship belt thing the Coyotes have going on with their player of the game this year. Like most others, Yandle was not in a very jolly mood on Monday following the Boston Marathon bombings.
As you can see from the photo above that Hockey Lifestyle passed along, Yandle paid tribute to the city of Boston on Monday night by writing “pray for Boston” across the bottom of each side of his skate. It was a similar gesture to the one we saw from Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Ben Revere, who wrote the same words across his glove.
Yandle is a native of Massachusetts and has Boston listed as his hometown on most of his online profiles. Almost the entire nation is feeling the sting of the cowardly terrorist attack, but those with ties to Boston can’t help but feel it a little bit more.
