Clark said that passion is one separate thing, but the way he handled the Avs went even beyond that. Therefore, in his opinion, the results were well worth it.
Ryan Clark was chuckling to himself as he sat in his Arvada house. He was grinning broadly and sporting his Avs jersey as he recalled the day in January when he received that crucial letter.
AVS Fan Banned From Ball Arena Says Penalty Was Deserved
He said, “I wish I could find it so I could show you.” He laughed and stated, “It was them keeping me out of Ball Arena for the rest of the season of Avalanche. Like I stated, absolutely worth every penny.”
Now that Clark is aware Kyle Stark is presumably also an ardent Atlanta Hawks fan, he can laugh.
“I suppose the best way to say it is “thick as thieves,” you know. I would Facetime the games for him, and we would both watch them “explained Clark. The following day, I received the call.
Kyle’s family informed Clark about the passing of his best friend over the phone in December. It was a few days before Kyle, who was 31 years old, would spend Christmas with his family.
His funeral had an Avs motif. Kyle’s mother distributed pucks, Clark donned a jersey, and the following day Clark brought Kyle’s ashes to the Avs game.
“I kind of glanced at them at that moment and thought, “I’d want to get ’em on the ice.” He would choose that ice if he had to choose a place for his ashes to rest.”
Kyle’s ashes were scattered over the rink wall by Clark. A Zamboni finished the job shortly after.
“A younger usher asked me what I was doing as I turned around and went away, and I replied, “I got to be honest with you, that was my buddy, Kyle.” He was like, “Oh man, I absolutely understand that but they want to talk to you up there,” and I said, “Well, he passed away and his burial service was yesterday, and those were some of the ashes I put on the ice.”
Clark consented to his destiny. Kyle’s contribution to the Avs’ victory over the Maple Leafs in overtime that day was observed by the man as he departed Ball Arena.
Clark said that passion is one separate thing, but the way he handled the Avs went even beyond that. For him, the repercussions were well worth it since I had so much love for it.
Nobody can predict how the Avs will do this season, but they can count on Kyle to provide the assist.
