WINNIPEG – Bryan Little hasn’t forgotten the sight and sound of the Winnipeg whiteout.
The excitement the Jets created for their loud, white-clad fans when they made last season’s NHL playoffs is fuelling the veteran forward and his teammates as they get set for another campaign.
“I think it stuck with everyone over the whole summer,” Little said before Winnipeg’s exhibition game Thursday at home against Calgary.
“For me, it was a great experience. But you just get the feeling in the dressing room that we want to experience more of it.… We’re all hungry to see what else we can do.”
