Leopold via NHLPA, Letter via @KFAN1003 Awwwww
Jordan Leopold's 11-year-old daughter, Jordyn, missed her father and wanted him to come back to Minnesota, where the Leopolds live year-round.
Earlier this winter she wrote a handwritten letter asking the Wild to trade for her dad, a 12-year NHL veteran who had already been traded once this season. Yesterday the Wild actually obliged, sending a fifth-found pick and Justin Falk to the Columbus Blue Jackets to bring the native Minnesotan back home for a Stanley Cup playoff run.
