In an interview with Inside Hockey magazine, Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask discussed his rise as one of the best net minders in the professional hockey, as well as his personal life.
The native of Finland revealed that his parents named him after the title of the first album recorded by Swedish pop group ABBA.
“My parents loved ABBA’s album called ‘Tuukka Rask,’” said the seven-year NHL veteran. “My father told me I was conceived in the back seat of a 1973 Saab while he and mother were listening to the 8-track tape version.”
“I have no problem with my name. I am just very happy that mom and dad’s favorite album wasn’t ‘Ballbreaker’ by AC/DC.”
