“What a feeling,” Edmundson said. “Just for our team to turn the season around. We were in last place halfway through it and to be able to hoist the Stanley Cup now, what a feeling.”
Edmundson’s parents, Lois and Bob, then joined him on camera and Bob gave his son a big bear hug and screamed with joy.
“No words,” Bob said to explain the feeling. “Just unbelievable. Lots of hard work and it’s great to be here, that’s all I can say. Great team effort.”
Bob coached Joel and his older brother, Jesse, through the peewee level.
“There’s a lot of people that have gone behind us and supported us all the way and that’s what I think of,” Bob told Bukauskas before he was overcome with emotion and could no longer speak.
It was heartwarming to watch.
