Congrats To The Merzlikins And CBJ Family

Yes, some outlets were reporting this over the weekend, but you know I only release information when I can verify it.  Now, I can happily report that Aleksandra and Elvis Merzlikins are parents!  Their son has a special name too, Knox Matiss Merzlikins.  His middle name is meant to honor former goaltender Matiss Kivlenieks, a fellow Latvian and “brother” to Elvis.  We learned at his funeral that Matiss passed away after stepping in front of a firework, to protect several others, including Aleksandra and Elvis, this past July 4th.  It is a beautiful way to honor him, and we’re so happy for the family.
