Gitzler wants the jersey to travel for as long as his beloved Lightning last in the postseason.
And when it is all over, hopefully with the Tampa Bay Lightning hoisting the Stanley Cup, he plans to frame the Humboldt Jersey and send it north to the families of the Humboldt Broncos in a show of love and support for those dealing with so much hurt.
“Hockey is a community,” Gitzler says. “We always look out for each other and always take care of each other.”
