Toronto goalie Jussi Rynnas, who is scheduled to play for Toronto’s AHL team this season, came from Finland with a nickname. He’s called the “The Bus.”
It’s not difficult to understand how he got the nickname. He’s 6-5 and 205, bigger than his Swedish counterpart, Jonas “The Monster” Gustavsson, who’s only 6-3 and 192.
