"It's shocking. I think when a season goes this way, no one really feels safe and everybody accepts that there's a possibility of something happening but when it does it catches you off guard."
Dubnyk was looking forward to the opportunity in Nashville.
"It's been a crazy day for me but the more I sit down and think about it, it's just a fantastic opportunity for me to go to a real good hockey team and play some games and I'm really excited about that."
The goaltender also reflected on his time in Edmonton.
"It's probably better to ask me in a couple weeks when I come back (January 26) when I have time to sit down and think about it all. This organization gave me an opportunity to live my dream and play in the NHL and I'll always be grateful for that."
