Very nice Andy. I do not know if you heard about this but at the last regular season game at Yost, the pep band played the Swedish national anthem. Then, at the last regular season game at Northern, their band played it also.

I heard/read also that the students passed around the falg they had been waving for years and signed it and gave it to him after the game.

I'd also love to see an alternate wallpaper with the red and white of the flag's true colors.

falg flag it's all relative

That is the true colors of the flag. Hagelin is from Sweeden not Switzerland.

I can verify that the students did, in fact all sign the flag and gave it to him on senior night during the ceremonies after the game. This was the game that he scored the tying goal with about 40seconds left and the winning goal in OT with just 2.9 seconds left. As it ended up, those three points were pretty important to them winning the CCHA. Several students had Swedish flags that they held up for every goal he scored during his four years. The one they gave him however was the large version that the "hockey nerds" always held up and it was pretty cool to see.

OK I'm dumb.

I thought though the flag the students had was red n white thus beings Swiss?
Maybe I was just always drunk.
