“I know I can play the game. Sometimes I might have to defend myself a little bit to people who think I can’t play anymore. I’m very motivated. [Last season] kept me very hungry all summer.”
“I know Alain a little bit and really like him as a person. “I don’t know him as a coach but I’ve only heard good things about him from guys who played for him in Vancouver.
“I’m excited for this new chapter, this new voice and new view of how we’re going to play.”
