2014 PLAYOFF NOTES: Earned his first point of the playoffs and first career playoff assist in GM 2 vs. LA ... Tied for the team lead with six hits and skated in a career-most 15:30 of ice time in GM 1 at STL on April 17
I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
