It’s been a momentous couple of days for Colorado Avalanche superstar Nathan MacKinnon as he was invited back to his hometown to have his #22 jersey retired by his former junior team, the Halifax Mooseheads. MacKinnon was in attendance as the Avalanche allowed him to skip a couple days of practice to be present for the occasion.
