One more Wings post: Mickey York goes ‘Off the Boards’ with Dan…Danny…I mean Daniel Cleary

Quite a few posts for an off-day, so I promise this is the last Red Wings one for a bit: Via RedWingsFeed yet again, Fox Sports Detroit unveiled a very cute and engaging feature last night called "Off the Boards," and FSD's Mickey York spent three and-a-half minutes speaking to Wings forward Daniel Cleary about his first name changes and being a Newfie...I mean Newfoundlander.

I hope FSD continues doing these features, because we very rarely "get to know" Wings players via relaxed-setting interviews. It's mostly post-practice and post-game scrums and the occasional sit-down interview for TV...and the Swedish papers. Other than that, their personalities remain obscured to some extent:

That’s a cool interview. I am from Mtl Qc, and you don’t say “newfie”....it’s like saying “stupid”. We have a lot of “newfie” jokes….and the one that is a “newfie” is labeled a “moron” . All in good fun !

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
