“How on earth did we get here?” some of them are no doubt asking. Just when you think it can’t sink any lower, the Donald hits the down button once again.

WINNIPEG — Eager members of the local and national media hoping to take a spin on the freshly-flooded NHL Heritage Classic rink were defeated by Mother Nature on Friday.

Teemu Selanne was bestowed with the key to the city by Mayor Brian Bowman during a ceremony Friday afternoon at MTS Centre.
Selanne arrived in Winnipeg Thursday night to a swarm of fans at James Richardson International Airport. The former Jet, who played nearly four seasons in Winnipeg up until 1995-96, is still adored in the city and had a chance to play against his former team a few years ago when the Anaheim Ducks came to town.

Police are still waiting for confirmation from Health Canada, but Carver said investigators immediately donned hazmat suits.
