Jets Captain Andrew Ladd Gives Postgame Interview in Flight Helmet

Wednesday February 5th, 2014

Teams giving their player of the game a silly hat to wear is an underrated NHL tradition. The Rangers famously had that awful little trilby. The Canucks wore the haida hat. And now apparently the Jets have a flight helmet befitting their name.

The real joy of this post-game scrum is how straight Ladd plays it. I just wonder which intrepid reporter will finally ask him if the Jets felt some danger skating through the neutral zone ... and if so, what he would then call such a zone.
