"He's got a great disposition about him and he handles all situations. How he's handled preparing himself going into games knowing the workload is big and the time of year is even bigger is a complement to how he approaches the whole game." -- Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville
"It's just another hand that you get dealt. Obviously we feel comfortable that no matter who we put in the net has proven that they can play NHL-caliber goal for us and stop the puck and give us a chance." -- Randy Carlyle
"We've said it before and continue to say it -- he has a couple more steps to go in his rehabilitation before he can even think about returning to play. I don't know how fast that's going to happen, I don't know if that's going to happen. There's no way to even make a timetable." -- Dan Bylsma

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.
