Kyle Turris showed you can go home again, and when you do, you will have plenty of friends waiting there to greet you.
The Nashville Predators forward, who spent seven seasons with the Ottawa Senators, was given a heroes welcome by his friends with the Capital City Condors, an adapted hockey team for children and adults with special needs.
The Condors teamed up for a surprise for Turris upon his arrival. They left a signed poster that read "Welcome Home Kyle!" and also some freshly baked cookies and a carton of milk for their pal.
Turris returned the favor by skating over to the Condors section, which was flooded with Predators apparel and homemade signs welcoming him back to Canadian Tire Centre.
Before the game, Turris spoke to the media about the fond relationship he and Senators defenseman Mark Borowiecki have with the Condors.
Turris once celebrated a game-winning goal in the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs and immediately attended the Condors banquet after the game.
Despite being traded to the Predators in November of 2017, Turris and his wife, Julie, maintain a strong connection with the Condors.
