Red Wings’ Jake Walman earns praise for dance move, promotion for play - MLive

“My buddies around the league thought it was cool,” Walman said. “It was more for the kids. That’s just me. I like having fun. Hockey is supposed to be fun, so I think anytime you can add a little of that is cool.”

He added, “I actually did it once before, but the camera didn’t catch it. It was a long time coming. It was a good time to do it and I think the boys wanted me to do it and they were happy I did it.”

I like his answer and his attitude about this.
