The Winnipeg Jets
wrapped practice Thursday with a light moment.
The team gathered at center ice to "practice" their fan salute. Like other NHL teams, the Jets have adopted the European tradition of paying tribute to their fans at the end of games.
Afterward, captain Andrew Ladd
explained the salute was for use in the 2011 Molson Canadian NHL Face-Off later in the day.
"It's something that we did the first few games," Ladd said. "It's nice to give the crowd credit for being so supportive of us."
