The NHL gave permission to its players to return to their home country on Monday. Previously, it was requested to stay in their NHL city for hopes of the season picking back up soon.
Andre Burakovsky, Marcus Johansson, and a bunch of other Swedish hockey players all had the same idea and booked a private jet back to their home country.
Burakovsky posted a video of the flight and documented the atmosphere of the plane. A bunch of dudes having conversations.
The star of the video is the former Capital, Mojo, who upon a request to “look up” by Burakovsky, gave his former teammate a mile high salute. We know you actually love him, Marcus.
Also visible in the video is Alexander Wennberg of the Columbus Blue Jackets.
While the NHL is allowing players to return to their home countries, the mandate is that they continue a quarantine until the end of March.
Six feet apart, boys!
