Nunavut thank you for sharing Jordan with us for eight years. A great person and absolutely fun to watch on the ice. I was able to meet Jordan and his father and they were great to talk too. Jordan’s father gave me his Nunavut council hat and I still cherish it. Would love to have Jordan and his family back in our community as part of the Predators.
