Tootoo Refining His Game

from the Edmonton Sun,

This year, Tootoo had nine goals and six assists in 47 games. He scored 11 goals in his first three years.

“I’ve been trying to focus more on making plays rather than looking for that big hit,” Tootoo said. “I still have to be physical because that’s the foundation of my game. I think it really intimidates players knowing they have to be aware of when I’m out there and they have to keep their heads up.

“But I’m looking to do more than that now. I think that comes with maturity. I’m holding on to that puck for that extra-second longer instead of being so nervous with it that you want to get rid of it right away.”
