Jean-Sebastien Giguere: In 2003, dad talked about his famous son
Claude Giguere, father of Ducks goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere, died Monday in Montreal of an undisclosed illness. A former school bus driver, corrections officer and stoker on a navy ship, he bought J.S. -- his youngest child -- the boy's first goaltending equipment.
In this 2003 story, published before the Ducks opened the Stanley Cup finals against the New Jersey Devils, you can get a sense of how down-to-earth Claude Giguere was and understand how J.S. has turned out to be the classy and upstanding person that he is.
