Holtby talked to Sportsnet about his love for New Orleans is Sinking

“I’ve always loved that song, I don’t know why, since I was young,” he said. “I heard it all the time, my mom’s band they would play it all the time. There’s a lot of different songs. What’s pretty cool about their music, it’s hard to pick one because they put so many different styles on their tracks. That one’s always one that I could never turn off.”
