Rod Stewart's son making a name for himself in hockey

Rock superstar Rod Stewart is well-known for his love of soccer, especially the Celtic Football Club in Glasgow, Scotland.

Hockey, it turns out, is another matter.

"All he knows is if my team scores. That's about it," said his son, Liam Stewart. "I was like, 'Dad, that's all you need to know — if we win or if we score.'"

Liam Stewart, 21, is the newest addition to the roster of the Alaska Aces, an ECHL development league team affiliated with the Minnesota Wild of the NHL. The 6-foot-1, 181-pound forward was traded to the Anchorage team from Missouri in early October after playing the past four years for the Spokane Chiefs.
