Paul Byron grew up cheering for Anaheim

Though he grew up in Ottawa right alongside the Senators, Paul Byron wasn’t a fan.
“Surprisingly, no,” he said.
“The Senators were always pretty big in Ottawa, but growing up I was an Anaheim Mighty Ducks fan and my favourite player was Paul Kariya, who Ottawa could have drafted, actually.
“So maybe if they had drafted Paul Kariya, I would have been a Senators fan.”
Kariya was taken fourth overall in the 1993 draft. Ottawa, drafting first, took Alexandre Daigle.
Guess no one remembers who was taken fourth, either.
