It appears as though Nikolai Zherdev is determined to make his second NHL tour of duty a memorable one with the Philadelphia Flyers.
In his initial conference call with the media Wednesday after signing a one-year deal with the club July 9, Zherdev fielded questions regarding his return to the League following a one-year stint in the Kontinental Hockey League.
“I’m very happy to be back in the NHL,” Zherdev said via Russian translator Alexander Tyjnych. “I had some difficulty last season signing a contract in the NHL and I made the decision to stay one season in Russia. But basically my goal is to come to the NHL and be one of the best players, and play every night, and show everybody I’m ready. It’s a new team, new teammates, new coach, new organization, new city, but I’m a hockey player. I still have my tools and I like to show to everybody I’m still a good hockey player.”
