American League Manager of the Year Paul Molitor was honored by the Minnesota Wild Friday night

Paul Molitor had a busy 2017: His Twins finished second in the AL Central boasting an 85-77 record, he won the AL Manager of the Year Award and, on Friday night, he was a special guest of the Minnesota Wild.

He kicked things off prior to the team's matchup against the Nashville Predators with a fabulous introduction in front of the home crowd and the ceremonial "Let's play hockey" call.

"All right Wild fans," Molitor said to the crowd. "This is our ice." And the crowd ate it up:

What a natural. Is there anything this Hall of Famer can't do?
