EDM@WPG: Letestu eats mustard on Jets' bench

With the 3rd period underway in Winnipeg, Mark Letestu procures a mustard packet on the bench and quickly eats it

  • 00:30 •

If you can't cook up the entire hot dog on the bench during a hockey game, you can at least chug a condiment.

Winnipeg Jets forward Mark Letestu was shown downing a mustard packet during the third period of a preseason game against the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday.

Yep, mustard.

Nope, we do not know why either. Yet.

We haven't seen this one before, mustard packets on the bench, but there has to be a reason for it.

Maybe Letestu finds it refreshing? Or maybe there is another reason.

Will this habit be carried into the 2019-20 regular season?

There's only one way to find that out. Tune in, starting Wednesday.
