Blues defenseman Jay McKee suffered through an injury plagued season in 2006-07. He has spent the summer training to be healthy for the upcoming year and he took some time to discuss his offseason with St. Louis Blues Online.

Q. What was the biggest highlight for you over the course the past season?

A. "I think the highlight of the season for myself is just being here and being part of this club and getting to know the guys. That’s kind of a new chapter in my life after being in one spot for 10 years. So I’ve really enjoyed being a part of this organization and seeing the direction that it’s going."

Q. What are you most looking forward to next season?
A. "I’m looking forward to playing. When you play hockey all your life, there’s nothing you’d rather do than be healthy for a season and play all the games. Hopefully I’ll come back stronger than ever."

Q. What kind of offseason vacation plans do you have?
A. "Nothing for me. I’ll spend my summer in Buffalo, so there’s no vacation plans in the immediate future."

Q. What kind of training are you doing in the offseason?
A. "I started right away. I can do upper body stuff with my injury. I like to run and bike in the summer and do a lot of that with my cardio. Just like everyone else, I’ll train all summer and be ready for next season."

Q. Will we find you in any Major League Ballparks this summer?
A. "No, you know what, I usually just stick around the house with the kids."

Q. If you could say something to Blues fans, what would it be?
A. "I want to thank them for all their support for myself and for this hockey club. The fans are what makes this game run. I saw it before when I played here years ago. It’s an incredible city and an incredible sports town, and we’re all looking forward to next season."
