We asked Amar Dhaliwal, RWB Second Soloist and a hockey fan what he thought about the return of the NHL to Winnipeg. Here’s what he had to say:
As someone who has come from a hockey city (Edmonton), I feel that the return of the NHL to Winnipeg brings great promise for all of the hockey hungry fans who have been patiently waiting for this day to come. As a Royal Winnipeg Ballet dancer I know firsthand that this city has a great capacity for supporting of its institutions. Our community understands the importance of keeping up with tradition and with maintaining the things that make our city great. This is how we got the team back, and this is how we will keep them. I am looking forward to having a professional team back among us and welcoming them back.
