Both Mark Scheifele and Brandon Tanev got a special shout-out on the Jets’ Facebook page from an instructor at Red River College.

The instructor praised the hockey players for their thoughtfulness after Scheifele and Tanev heard his student was going to be late for her culinary exam because she couldn’t find a space to park her car.

The Jets players were heading in to a restaurant in the same area, but upon learning the student would be late, Tanev went to grab a seat at the restaurant while Scheifele moved the car so she could take the last spot in the lot and make her exam.
