His 12 goals at the 2008 World Championship set a modern day Canadian record at the tournament - surpassing Eric Lindros' 11 in 1993.

Right now I'm just happy to be back and get through this season and make sure I do my job. I've never had an issue with having to prove myself again and I'll try to do it again. We'll see where it takes me.
