PPP Dictionary: Our Luke and Saviour (OLAS)

Editor's Note: In an effort to outline some of the inside jokes/short forms/terms that are used throughout the site we have started creating Dictionary entries. If there is anything that you don't quite understand don't be shy: request a clarification here.

On June 20th, 2008 the Toronto Maple Leafs traded a first round pick, a second round pick, and a third round pick (TM Damien "The Omen" Cox) for the right to select Luke Schenn from the Kelowna Rockets. With that selection he became the Leafs' franchise saviour: a bruising Western defenceman from Saskatchewan that can chuck knuckles. The similarities to the last top five draft pick of the Leafs is proof that he is the Second Coming. Here's a picture of his first team meal:

In the pre-season, he showed a flash of the offensive side of his game and the celebration picture caught his true nature:

Also Likely.

As an 18 and 19 year old Our Luke and Saviour has patrolled the blueline destroying opponents, dropping the gloves at will, and even potting a goal to top off the sundae of awesomeness. Most importantly, he has given Leafs fans something that had been in short supply:

Update: I have tracked down the first instance of this nickname being used and wish to note that Godd Till, formerly of Cox Bloc fame, coined the nickname on October 7th, 2008:

Besides his development, I want Luke to go down so I can go to Giants games when Kelowna is in town, wear my Leafs jersey, and cheer for OLAS (Our Luke and Saviour) the entire time.
