Talk about initiative. Hockey player Jordan Leopold’s 11-year-old daughter just got her hometown hockey team, the Minnesota Wild, to trade for her father, who was playing for the Columbus Blue Jackets.
“Well my dad is very lonly [sic] without his family. We are living in Minnesota right now and I am lost without my dad and so is my mom, my 2 sisters, and my brother,” young Jordyn Leopold wrote in a heartfelt letter to the coaches at Minnesota Wild.
Her wish was granted Monday, when 34-year-old Leopold was traded to the Minnesota Wild as a defenseman, allowing him to return home and reunite with his family.
Looks like a career in player management could be shaping up for young Jordyn.
