Here's why Luke Richardson sent a kiss to the skies after the Canadiens win
Radio-Canada sports journalist Christine Roger explained on Twitter why Luke Richardson sent a kiss to the sky when he touched his pin on his jacket after the victory of the Montreal Canadiens. She wrote: " Wow. Luke Richardson's daughter committed suicide in 2010 at the age of 14. We saw him send a kiss to the sky after his 1st victory as head coach. Everything that happens with this team cannot be invented. ". The pin is that of the organization DIFD created for his daughter (Do It For Daron) which aims to create a dialogue on mental health in young people.
This was a beautiful moment that brought tears to my eyes. Luke Richardson coaches the #Habs to on OT win and kisses his lapel pin. It's for @difdroyal an org in memory of his late daughter Daron promoting mental health for youth. pic.twitter.com/BURl7jqd9C
