Jussi Rynnas is not the first Maple Leaf goalie to appear in an Upper Deck Boot Camp video. That honor belongs to Jonas Gustavsson who learned how to treat a mascott in his video.
And fans of these videos will have a whole new series of videos to enjoy throughout the course of the season with the first one launching today. After two successful seasons, Upper Deck put Coach Ron Cherry on the bench and brought in Coach Dewey Schuntz who is widely regarded as the worst rookie in NHL history. It was our hope he could teach the players what not to do and we think he did a great job. Watch the first video of the season where Coach Schuntz works with Jake Allen of the St. Louis Blues and Jussi Rynnas of the Toronto Maple Leafs on mental toughness. Also, look for two small cameos from our NHL Ultimate Fan Alex Vegh and Geoff Connolly from Clouts N’ Chara in this video.
