ST. LOUIS - Just two days before Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final, Vladimir Tarasenko and his wife, Yana, welcomed a baby boy to the family.
The baby was born on June 7 and measured 7.4 pounds and 20.5 inches.
Yana posted the first picture to her Instagram account on Friday night showing Vladimir holding the baby while in a hospital gown.
The couple has not chosen a name just yet, but says they will in the coming days.
"I don't have words to describe it," Tarasenko said. "Just happiness and love everywhere around there."
