from Kevin Oklobzija of the Democrat and Chronicle,
In the course of winning 19 of 24 games for the Rochester Americans, (Alexander) Salak has found it appropriate to and/or managed to:
- Kiss a cross bar in the waning minutes of a one-goal victory;
- Flip his mask into the air to celebrate Keaton Ellerby’s hat trick in November;
- Mock a goal judge’s errant call by pretending to wash the Plexiglas;
- Drop-kick the puck some 40 feet down the ice during the All-Star Game;
- Enrage fans in Syracuse with an overzealous victory celebration in November, prompting security personnel to usher him out a side door to the waiting team bus;
- Acknowledge the applause of fans at the All-Star Game by waving to them during play.
“You want to put on a show for people,” Salak said.
