"The Moose" Comes Back Home

The Moose Returns

About a while back, the Penguins playoff phenom goalie Johan "The Moose" Hedberg, was famous for having the fans rally around him after coming from the San Jose franchise minor leagues of the Manitoba Moose. The fans in Pittsburgh would all shout "Mooooose" when Hedberg made a great save.

Since those playoffs, things didn't pan out in Pittsburgh and Hedberg was sent to the Vancouver Canucks. According to the above links, this season, the Moose is now the AHL affiliate of the Canucks. Now, Johan was sent to the team that made his nickname famous.
