When you come across a story that involves a tweet a professional athlete sent when they were in high school, it usually revolves around retroactively regrettable messages sent by a hopeless horny teenager or someone who didn’t have the foresight to not hit “Send” on some Problematic Posts that would eventually come back to haunt them.

However, we’ve been treated to a very notable exception courtesy of Jacob Trouba and Frank Vatrano.

Trouba played a single season with the Michigan Wolverines before kicking off his NHL career with the Winnipeg Jets in 2013 and was eventually traded to the Rangers, where the defenseman currently serves as an alternate captain. Vatrano, on the other hand, played a few years at UMass prior to joining the Bruins organization in 2015, but the forward has played the bulk of his NHL career with the Panthers.

However, the two of them go back a long way, as they both attended high school in Ann Arbor while honing their skills on the ice with the U.S. National Team Development Program, and on Wednesday, the old friends were reunited when Florida sent Vatrano to New York in exchange for a fourth-round pick.

After the news broke, Trouba commemorated the deal in the best way possible after digging up a tweet his newest teammate sent all the way back in 2011 featuring a photo of the two of them doing some silent reading during their high school days.
