But now, as the Edmonton Oilers get back to the grind — starting with fitness testing — and gear up for training camp, Letestu is readily focused on what lies ahead.
“This is kind of the unofficial kick-off now,” he said.
“To me it’s kind of the last loose ends to tie up before we get to work, which starts tomorrow, which I know myself included and probably speaking for some of the guys, we’re excited to get going.”
The atmosphere for the Oilers centre may be new — new city, new team, mixed with newfound fan excitement — but his readiness for camp and the tasks and strategies they’ll be working on hasn’t wavered.
“The expectations and the anticipation for the season, you know, we’re ready to go. It’s time to start and get going and start developing some team chemistry and things that make a team successful,” said Letestu.
