Hitchcock said the name reminded him of Frank Nitti, who was Al Capone's right hand man. Frank is a much cooler nickname for Antero Niittymaki than Nitty, "Nitty" is just another stupid hockey nickname, so even if the players aren't going to call him that, we here at HF do. Just like Mike Richards being Kramer. I doubt the players call him that, but he's Kramer to me.
