from Chuck Pleiness of The Oakland Press,
Jiri Hudler is glad to be back.
Back home in Hockeytown.
“I’ve got a history from here before,” said Hudler, who returned to Joe Louis Arena for the first time since signing a two-year, $10 million contract to play in Russia last season. “I missed it. I’m glad to be back.”
Hudler, who arrived in Detroit on Friday, did not take part in an informal skate Sunday, but was in the locker room chatting it up with a handful of players and re-familiarizing himself with his surroundings.
“It feels great,” Hudler said. “I can’t get enough of this feeling right now.
“It’s great being around the guys,” Hudler added. “It’s unbelievable. I’m so happy to be back. I’m thrilled. It feels like I never left.”
