  • Viktor Arvidsson: "It was a group of 3-4 friends that always went to the game. In Sweden, you either sit or stand as a fan so we were always standing at the glass. Just a feeling of going there with my friends and having fun."
  • Mikey Anderson: "It was a Minnesota Wild game. I was about 5 years old. My brother and I were wearing Marián Gáborík jerseys. We tried to go to as many of those [games] as we could."
