Evan Rodrigues is a self-admitted "Star Wars" nerd.
When asked if he could have any super power, he quickly responded by saying he would love to be able to do the Jedi Mind Trick so he could control things, like a hockey puck, with his thoughts.
So far Rodrigues has been doing a pretty good job of controlling his journey as a professional hockey player.
Rodrigues, 24, is hoping to be one of the pieces of the puzzle that can help the Buffalo Sabres claw their way out of the bottom of the Eastern Conference and back to respectability. Rodrigues has a way of making things happen and defying the odds.
A 5-foot-11, 175-pound winger who hails from Etobicoke, Ont., Rodrigues was coming off of a strong four-year career at Boston University when he signed with the Sabres in April 2015.
