From John Vogl of The Buffalo News,
It didn’t take Teppo Numminen long to realize what made folks in Winnipeg tick, what made it possible for them to get through those long winters in the middle of Canada.
“Hockey is their passion,” Numminen, who spent eight NHL seasons in Winnipeg, said Tuesday. “That’s where I started [in 1988]. I was 20 when I came, leaving home far away, leaving Finland, but I just felt right at home and welcomed. It was great to see the passion and support for the team.”
The passion—and the NHL—is back.
