Minnesota nice


When a fan-favorite hockey player returns to the Xcel Energy Center for the first time after being traded to another team, the Minnesota Wild welcome the player back and allow the crowd to pay homage. On day 363 of Photo 365, Cal Clutterbuck returned in a New York Islanders jersey after spending five seasons with the Wild. He received a standing ovation. I’m guessing many clubs pay tribute to players like this, but it also seems like a very “Minnesota nice” thing to do. Or perhaps we got our good hockey manners from Canada.
