COLUMBUS, OH – Blue Jackets forwards Sam Gagner and Cam Atkinson went completely unrecognized during their visit to season ticket holders' homes on Thursday afternoon.
The pair delivered season tickets to 20 select fans in the Columbus metropolitan area, without being recognized by a single person.
Cam Atkinson, drafted by the team in 2008, was greeted by one of the team's inaugural season ticket holders.
"We don't need no cookies, thanks sweetheart," Patty Locke said to the 28-year-old. "But good luck with your community service this fall."
"I remember my days as a girl guide very fondly."
A couple of houses down, Sam Gagner was greeted by a family ready for a photo op with a real-life NHLer.
"What, do you work in the team's IT department, or something?" Bill Jenkins asked him, as a number of the team's PR staff looked on expectantly. "Is this some kind of joke?"
Two of the man's children were reportedly seen running from the front yard crying as their father was pulled off Gagner while strangling his "puny little neck".
