"I think we're trying to develop our young players at the same time as we're trying to win. There's going to be rotation. Different guys are going to get opportunities based on how they're playing, and that's the process we're going through." -- Blackhawks coach Jeremy Colliton
"Just having him in the locker room, it changes this whole group. We're happy when he's in, but if he's not playing, he definitely brings a lot more positivity to this group." -- Golden Knights forward Reilly Smith on Marc-Andre Fleury
