Antoine Vermette’s Ford Escort

All of us have a few skeletons in our closet. Something we might be hiding from others, or that maybe we were a tad ashamed of.

Then there are the other folks who drag those skeletons out like a badge of honor.

Such is the case for Antoine Vermette, newly returned to the Coyotes after winning the Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks last season after a mid-season trade. Vermy joined AZCentral for Arizona Coyotes Confidential and spilled the beans that his original car was a black 1994 Ford Escort.

You can see a picture of the very car above. That statement was categorically false. That’s just a random picture of a 94 Escort I googled up.

I’m not sure I can imagine a gangly young Vermette driving an old Ford Escort, but maybe he can buy it back from wherever it is and treat it to a day with Lord Stanley for helping him become the man he is today.
