Mike Modano praises play of Kaprizov and Fiala

Sometimes it just takes a highly-talented player to talk about players for it to finally sink in that they are very good.

During Saturday’s broadcast of the Minnesota Wild game against the San Jose Sharks, in a little segment on Bally Sports North, American hockey legend Mike Modano talked about what sets apart the top forwards in the NHL from the rest.

“A real hidden message between top-end talent players is that they love practicing, they love working at their craft. It’s not a fluke that they’re at the level of skill they are at,” Modano said.
