If you’re a Penguins fan like myself, you cannot help but have a rather large soft spot for Johan “The Moose” Hedberg. He came out of nowhere (OK, actually, from Manitoba) to play great in net for Pittsburgh during Mario Lemieux’s magical out-of-retirement run and will drink for free eternally in the bar that exists only in my mind.
He made a nice handful of saves in this video, including a jaw dropping gamble against Evgeni Malkin. Then he endeared himself to Pens fans by being good – but not good enough – to beat Pittsburgh. You’re a good man, Johan.
