They said it
"I've known him since I was like 9 years old so just miss hanging out with him, beating him at golf and obviously miss him in the room and on the ice. He was my partner for a few years and we had great chemistry. We'll chirp each other, no doubt about that. He's going to try to rush the puck and I'm going to try to stand him up. Everyone says even if you're friends off the ice, it's all business on the ice." -- Kings defenseman Drew Doughty on Jake Muzzin
"It'll be different, I've never done that. It'll be fun out there seeing some of guys I played with for a long time, it'll be a little different but it will be fun. I had a good career there, a lot of good memories and a lot of good friendships." -- Maple Leafs defenseman Jake Muzzin
