Guillaume Latendresse started his season in Montreal, and four months later, he's become a fan favorite in Minnesota. The Wild's goal-scoring leader sat down with Wild play-by-play man, Dan Terhaar shortly before enjoying his Olympic break. Terhaar also got some help from Pierre-Marc Bouchard, who was able to serve as translator in a time of need.

Dan Terhaar - Tell me about your son. I met him when we were in Montreal.

Guillaume Latendresse - Hayden is 18 months old. It’s great being a dad. We like to go for walks.

DT - What were you like as a kid?

GL - I was a little terror, and so is Hayden. Now I know what a handfull I was.

DT - What other sports did you play as a kid?

GL - I played baseball and soccer. I was a shortstop in baseball and soccer and well, I didn’t want to run, so that didn’t go so well. Now I like to watch Baseball and golf. I go golfing whenever I can.

DT - Did you have a favorite super hero?

GL - Definitely. The Ultimate Warrior.

DT - Do you cook?

GL - I am a terrible cook. I go to Manny’s Steakhouse as often as I can. That’s my favorite place to eat.

DT - What’s your favorite road city?

GL - That would have to be New York. There are lots of things to do there.

DT - What’s a good day off for you?

GL - I would start by sleeping in, and then eat a big breakfast with eggs, bacon and potatoes. That’s a good day already. After that, it doesn’t matter.

DT - Do you have a favorite food?

GL - Puddin.

DT – Pudding? Like chocolate pudding?

Latendresse gives Terhaar a confused look. Pierre-Marc Bouchard enters the conversation, speaking French. Both players laugh and now Terhaar has a confused look.

Pierre-Marc Bouchard - (speaking English) Not pudding…Poutine. It’s French fries and cheese curds covered with gravy.

GL - You really need to try Poutine.

DT - What would you be doing if you were not a hockey player?

GL - I think I might be a police officer. That would be an interesting profession. If not that, my Dad owns a renovation company. I might be working with him.

DT - What about after hockey?

GL - I think I might like being in the media. I could see myself doing a radio show.
