UFA, RUSSIA - Don Nachbaur was Steve Spott’s latest victim.

Nachbaur, an assistant coach with Canada, spent the entire practice on Wednesday with a sign taped to his back that said ‘DON NACHBAUR’ in block letters.

Courtesy of Spott, the head coach. Pranks are as much a part of Spott as motivational speeches and drawing up plays on the whiteboard.

Nachbaur didn’t know about the name skullduggery until Spott pulled the sign off his back. In front of all of the media, of course.
