Growing up in the Twin Cities and Carmel, Ind., you wouldn’t expect Danny Kristo to be a UND fan. Yet ever since he was young, that’s the team he followed and dreamed of playing for some day.
His family sent me some pictures of young Danny, and they show he was a big Sioux fan from the start.

And just for good measure, Kristo was drafted by the Montreal Canadiens. Here he is at 4 months.
