After missing the last five games due to a concussion, Milan Michalek returns to the lineup. Chris Phillips did not take part in the morning skate and won't play tonight. There was no update on Jesse Winchester, who has missed the last two games with a concussion.
It was definitely emotional. I really appreciated the fans. It was a cool feeling and it felt special and the ovation there at the start and then you kind of feel funny out there standing by yourself. Thinking back, I was saying just a bit ago, you think back just trying to make the NHL and then you kind of reflect on all the years being able to play for a great organization here in Calgary and all the fun I've had so far in my career. I feel very fortunate and blessed.
