Rudy Kelly is a not very good writer from Long Beach, CA. He started playing hockey at the age of 7 after he saw Marty McSorley beat up a guy. His passions in life are hockey, dogs, and occasionally hockey playing dogs. He has been described as "surprisingly zesty." He has been pepper sprayed. He has a restraining order against him, filed by Kelly Hrudey. The last thing happened shortly after the second-to-last thing but before the third to last thing. "See what I said about him not being a very good writer? That was incredibly confusing for the reader. Really, no craftsmanship at all.
