Call him a chip off the old block.
Right down to the grizzly, but impeccably tamed red mane, Adam Lowry is following in the footsteps of his father, "Jungle" Dave.
On Nov. 22, 2017, after years of wondering if the day would ever come, the pair went head-to-head during an NHL game for the very first time.
On the Winnipeg end, it was Adam - the fourth-year Jet trying to help his team get a win in the second of a four-game road trip. On the opposite side stood Dave - a longtime NHLer with more than 1,000 games to his name - who is now an assistant coach with the always tough Los Angeles Kings.
Dave, who was the prototypical third- or fourth-line power forward, is proud of the player - and man - Adam has grown into.
"I was a player that had to work every day and train hard in the summertime, and you're hopeful that you can instill that work ethic into your kids and they can use it later on in life.
"I'm very proud of everything he's accomplished."
