He said, ‘Yes!’ Young fan asks Coyotes F Anthony Duclair to marry her

Coyotes forward Anthony Duclair didn’t see the proposal coming.

Issued in the form of a prepared letter and hand delivered by the writer, Gracie, Duclair read the brief note from his young fan.

“I love you. Are you happy to be back? Will you marry me?” the note said.

Duclair’s answer pleased Gracie, who calls Duclair her favorite player.

“Yes and yes,” the Coyote told her.

Props to Gracie, who just invented the most direct way to ask for someone’s hand in marriage. Judging from Duclair’s response after his first engagement, he is stoked.
