There was a smile on Johan Franzen's face after Wednesday's morning skate that probably won't go away any time soon.

Franzen became a first-time father Monday morning. He and his wife Cecilia welcomed Eddie Bo Johan Franzen to the world.

"It was something else," said Franzen, who'll be in the lineup Wednesday night against Anaheim after missing Monday's game in Los Angeles. "Pretty special."

Franzen created some confusion with teammates when he emailed a picture of the baby - but didn't say whether it was a boy or girl.
