Jordin Tootoo is currently playing for the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins and is hoping to make his way back to the NHL, but that doesn’t make him any less of a superstar to his biggest fan. Tootoo was skating off the ice earlier this week after pregame warmups when he came across a young fan who was looking for a high-five. He treated him to a lot more.
When Tootoo heard the kid yell his name, he stopped to say hello. He then gave him his stick and said “it’s all yours.” The kid could not have been more excited.
Tootoo spent eight seasons with the Nashville Predators before playing sparingly with the Detroit Red Wings over the past two. Why is the youngster such a fan? He must have have seen that bad ass video of the right winger when his nose wouldn’t stop bleeding during an interview.
