Patrick Sharp, Haley Irwin 'Thunder Bay proud' in Sochi
Hockey stars share hometown pride during Olympic closing ceremonies
A pair of Thunder Bay hockey stars shared a golden moment in Sochi Sunday.
Patrick Sharp and Haley Irwin, gold medallists with Canada's men's and women's hockey teams, walked together during the closing ceremonies of Sochi 2014.
Sharp tweeted a photo of the two with the caption, "Thanks for walking the closing ceremonies with me, Haley. Thunder Bay proud."
Sharp, 32, played in his first Olympic Games. He was part of a men's team that defeated Sweden 3-0 in the gold medal game Sunday morning.
It was the second gold medal for Irwin, 25, who was also a part of Team Canada's gold medal run in Vancouver in 2010.
Irwin arrives back home in Thunder Bay Tuesday night.
