from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,
"I've texted with him a little bit," Larkin said Thursday. "He said it’s cool playing on a good team. It’s a good team, good players. He’s going to do really well and going to go on a run and I’m really happy for him in that way.
"It’s going to be a tough game but I am excited to see how we stack up against these guys. It’s been emotional, it’s been kind of hard to see the dream of making the playoffs fade away, but we’ve kind of gotten over that and now we hit the reset button a little bit. We are still in it. You never know what can happen."...
"For me when I first came in here, I was a young guy and he would tell me to just play my game," Joe Veleno said. "If I had a turnover or made a made a bad play, he would tap me on the shoulder and be like, just keep playing. That is one thing I will remember about him."
Lucas Raymond spent most of his rookie season on a line with Bertuzzi, stoking a relationship that grew off the ice.
"Me and Tyler were very close," Raymond said. "We became really good friends and he was a big part of my time here. It’s going to be a little weird but a lot of fun to play him. We always joked around so now we can finally go at one another. He’s amazing guy, amazing player, I wish him all the best in Boston."...
"It’s going to be a weird," Zadina said. "Since I got here, I have been with Tyler on the team and hew as a huge part of this organization. I was looking up to him when I got here, my first season, so it was huge for me to see him play here and get better watching him. It’s going to be special to play against him, for sure, and hopefully he will take it easy on us."
DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today recalled center Austin Czarnik from the American Hockey League’s Grand Rapids Griffins under emergency conditions.
Czarnik, 30, has skated in 12 games with the Red Wings this season, recording three points (2-1-3), a plus-one rating, two penalty minutes, 13 shots and 12 hits in 11:27 average time on ice. The 5-foot-9, 170-pound forward has also played in 42 games with the Griffins and ranks among the team leaders with 13 goals (T2nd), 23 assists (3rd), 36 points (3rd), four power play goals (T2nd), one shorthanded goal (T2nd) and 84 shots (T5th).
Based on these comments from the players, Bert was a bigger leader than I expected.
What’s the reason not to call up Soderblom? Just so he plays 17 minutes in GR as opposed to 12 in Detroit?
He said it’s cool playing on a good team.
Right in the 'nads.
Good luck, TyBert. I hope you do well...just not against the Wings; then I hope you suck ass.
