Jets' captain Ladd becomes dad

Winnipeg Jets' captain and centreman Andrew Ladd has added a new title: dad.

Ladd and wife Brandy welcomed a baby boy into the world on Wednesday. His name is Locklan Joseph Ladd.

Daddy Ladd skipped the team practice on Wednesday and caused some concern for fans who maybe thought he suffered an injury just ahead of the NHL start on Saturday.

He was back at practice on Thursday.
