Dayn Belfour is trying to create his own identity in hockey at the University of Nebraska-Omaha.
The 22-year-old son of newly inducted Hockey Hall of Famer Ed Belfour is in his first season as a walk-on for the Mavericks. He's among three goalies competing to win the No. 1 goalie's job.
Dayn has modest statistics in limited playing time and probably would go about his business drawing little notice if it weren't for that last name. He says he has one of the "greatest names in hockey history" and that he "wears it proudly."
UNO coach Dean Blais says he's considering giving Dayn the start in one or both games of this weekend's series at North Dakota.
