Devan Tongue finds the fact that he’s still playing hockey today interesting.
The 20-year-old forward doesn’t come from a hockey family. It’s more of a baseball one. The ice game wasn’t a big part of his parents’ (Jeff and Tammy) lives. In fact, no one in his family really played the sport.
When Tongue was a kid, though, he noticed street hockey gear in his basement, picked up a stick and started shooting around a ball. Intrigued, his dad brought his 4-year-old son to the rink to see if hockey was something he would like to play.
