Detroit Red Wings' Ty Conklin Welcomes Son Nash

11/17/2008 at 12:00 PM ET

Detroit Red Wings’ Ty Conklin, 32, and his wife Erika welcomed son Nash Conklin on Saturday, November 15th. The couple’s third child weighed 7 lbs, 12 oz. Despite Ty being a professional goaltender, he does not want his son in that position.

"He won’t be a goalie. I wouldn’t do that to him. He can be a forward and score goals — that’s more fun."

Nash joins a three-year-old sister and 18-month-old brother.
