((Terrence Tootoo is a stocky 180 pound center who made the team on effort and heart and then skill. Tootoo is part Eskimo and part Ukrainian. He was raised in the harsh elements of Rankin Inlet, Nunuvet, a hunting and fishing community located about 200 or so miles south of the Arctic circle. Terrence grew up on a diet that was down right primitive. ((:))
Tootoo and his family consider Caribou a delicacy. Due to hockey, he is home only two weeks a year now, but loves to go hunting with his father and brother. They kill beluga whales and eat the whale meat right on the spot, raw. The dangers of his natural world keep him on his toes.
((:))
Igloos are not far from his house and the only way out of his town is by plane. 10 degrees above 0 makes for a warm summer day Terrence says, 60 below is a cold one. Tootoo is a favorite in the Express locker room and while he is tough on the ice he has a hard time digesting American food.))
