Everyone has a friend with an annoying little brother. He’s always there, wanting to play whatever game is currently occupying you and your friend.
It’s an inconvenience, but usually one that can be overlooked. The issues arise when the little brother starts playing equally as well as you and your friend. Then things get serious.
Nashville Predators defenseman Yannick Weber, who signed a one-year deal with the club on July 1, saw this scenario play out first hand in his home country of Switzerland. He and his teammate, also named Yannick, skated together for years until his friend’s little brother leveled up and started playing hockey with them.
