Sitting behind a microphone and next to his new boss, Marty Turco
smiled while watching his own highlights play on a nearby television screen.
The setting was the Stadium Club inside Chicago's United Center Tuesday, where Turco was officially introduced as the Chicago Blackhawks
' new No.1 goaltender.
Turco took questions about everything from his decision to sign with the Hawks, to his own desire win a Cup, to his noteworthy puck-handling skills. Turco talked about how happy and excited he was, but speaking for him more than words was the smile he wore along with a gray tie and pinstriped navy blazer.
"The opportunity to come to Chicago and play for a winner was the most important thing," Turco said, while seated next to Hawks General Manager Stan Bowman. "These kids looked like they had some fun last year and I want to be a part of it. I look forward to the opportunity to stand in my crease in the 'Madhouse on Madison' and get the chance to make some saves and get the people up on their feet, hopefully like on those highlights."
