This Monster Can Do Anything

from Jonas Siegel of TSN,

They call him the most interesting man in the world.

“He’s so interesting it’s crazy,” Colby Armstrong exclaimed.

And much like the widely celebrated figure in the Dos Equis beer commercials, Jonas Gustavsson has evolved into a cult hero of sorts in the Maple Leafs dressing room.

“We bug him that he’s the most interesting man in the world,” Armstrong grinned, referencing the popular series of advertisements.

“Remember in the commercial, he’s like riding a horse on his bare feet, like standing on the horse and it’s running…I think Monster could do that. I think he could easily do that. He’s a master of so many things; he’s sick at ping-pong, golf, he can do anything and he just has his own style to doing it which makes him super-interesting. And he’s Swedish and quiet, so it’s just so mysterious you know what I mean?”

Now in his third NHL season, the 27-year-old goaltender from Danderyd, Sweden is finally finding his groove in Toronto, climbing past a string of adversity – prominently a series of heart procedures – which plagued his first two seasons as a Leaf.
