Jordin Tootoo was a bit of a tough guy when he was with the Nashville Predators but seemed to show a softer side the other night with the Grand Rapids Griffins (a Red Wings affiliate) in the AHL.
Following the pregame skate in the team's season finale last week, Tootoo came off the ice to head to the dressing room. On his way there, a young boy standing on the bench excitedly yelled out "Tootoo!" and reached out. The player stopped, said hi to his new friend and gave the boy his stick.
