Nickname's for Henrik Karlsson

As per Alex Ruiz Twitter account:

Quote:
Henrik Karlsson's nicknames? "Bruno" "Ace Ventura" "Vez" - Video of #Flames' reaction to his fist pumps coming soon!
What does everyone else think would be a good nickname for him?

Personally I like Kung Fu, or Bruce.

if a teammate (Backlund and Kronwall actually did) came up with the name Calgary Tower I say stick with it... coming from a player it has much more meaning

I think the players have also named him Bruno though. And Conroy calls him Vez because he walks around like he's already won a Vezina, haha.

That was an awesome video, love how they say he holds the puck up in practice after he makes a save. Karlsson is a real competitor. Also it was real good to see the coach laughing! To me that shows maybe the culture is changing with the Flames.
