“Mainly I just listen to what Bobby Nye [Eric Nystrom] mixes up before the game. I just sit back and listen to what he’s got going, there’s nothing I have to worry about in that area.”

“That’s tough. My first goal was pretty special. But this whole season has been really good too. It’s kind of hard to just pick one, but if I had to, I guess I’d go for the first goal. But hopefully there are better things to come this season.”

“My dad. He played when he was younger, so I grew up watching him. That’s kind of how I got into hockey and he was coaching me when I was younger. He’s the biggest reason I started playing hockey.”

“I’m pretty lame to be honest. I don’t really do a lot of interesting things outside the rink. We usually just watch TV for awhile and then I cook dinner with the boys. That’s about it. Nothing too crazy, if there’s something on the schedule then we’ll go do it, but usually we take it very easy.”

“I have to pick myself right? So it’s me for sure, and then probably Roman [Josi], he could be good. Nystrom isn’t into country music so I can’t pick him. I’ll go [Carter] Hutton.”

“[Laughs] No. Obviously not. That’s just one of the reasons I’m so glad I get to be on his team and not against him.”
