On behalf of Canada

COngratulations Alex Ponikarovsky on becoming a Canadian citizen. You are the man. You've always played the game like a Canadian. Guys like Poni are few and far between. He better be representing Canada in Vancouver.

This right here is the moment I realized Poni would be a keeper. Rookie season taking on one of the biggest goons of alltime. Not the slightest bit of fear or hesitation. not intimdated in slightest, goes Ray shot for shot. You wont and dont see this from many if any Euro rookie. Very proud moment for all of Canada.

someone should also throw the clown commentator for Buffalo back to the street corner where they found him.
