Meet Mike Rupp

Mike Rupp is an American professional ice hockey player currently playing for the Minnesota Wild of the National Hockey League.

On July 1, 2011, Rupp signed a three-year contract worth $4.5 million with the New York Rangers. Rupp scored two goals in the 2012 Winter Classic to help the Rangers win 3-2. After Rupp scored his first goal, he saluted the crowd (just like Jaromir Jagr does when he scores a goal). This celebration led to a confrontation from Philadelphia Flyers forward Scott Hartnell.

On February 4, 2013, Rupp was traded to the Minnesota Wild in exchange for forwards Darroll Powe and Nick Palmieri.
