Hartman excited to wear USA jersey, again

Tuesday morning at practice, coach [Don] Lucia just wanted us to get our legs moving with a fast pace. We then did a little power play and penalty kill things.

At the end of practice, we had a little fun just skating around and chatting with each other. We have a good group of guys here; we can joke around with each other and we're becoming a tight group already so that's great to see.

I think I'm beginning to get good chemistry with my linemates the past few days [Jack Eichel and Adam Erne]. That's good considering it's our first time playing together, so I think we've been doing well. We've been with each other the last three practices and we were working the same power play unit on Tuesday, so maybe we can get even more chemistry while working that.

I'm excited to play in exhibition game [Tuesday] against Minnesota State. I haven't put a USA jersey on since Ufa, Russia [at the 2013 World Junior Championship], so that will be exciting. I'm really looking forward to that.

I'll check back later after the game.

Thanks for reading!

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
