Well, I’m in Bethlehem, PA today for Erik’s second lacrosse tournament, but I wasn’t going to forget Sunday Services – even though I had to wake up at 5am. Today’s services revolved around St. Louis Blues center Ryan O’Reilly. O’Reilly won the Conn Smythe Trophy this week for MVP of the Stanley Cup Finals. O’Reilly and the Blues beat the Boston Bruins, so obviously I despise him and the Blues.
But Sunday Services are not about me.
Ryan O’Reilly (born February 7, 1991) is a Canadian professional ice hockey center for the St. Louis Blues of the National Hockey League (NHL). O’Reilly was drafted 33rd overall in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft by the Colorado Avalanche, with whom he spent the first six seasons of his NHL career. In 2015, O’Reilly was traded to the Buffalo Sabres, where he would play three seasons until being traded to the Blues in 2018. O’Reilly won the Stanley Cup with the Blues in 2019 and was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy winner as playoff MVP following St. Louis’ win over the Boston Bruins in Game 7.
