Quick Hits: Ryan Dzingel

by Craig Medaglia @craigmedaglia / Ottawa Senators

He's leading all Sens' forwards in points, we caught up with Ryan Dzingel to talk about the Planet Earth 2 remix, bouncing around the line-up and more...


His thoughts on his starring role in our remix of the Planet Earth 2 Lizard video:

I'm just excited to see where you guys are going to go next. After the whale I didn't think you guys could get any weirder and then it happened so I'm just excited to see where your crazy mind is gonna take it next. Hopefully I keep scoring and you keep getting even more weird. I'm looking forward to it.

On being shuffled throughout the line-up:

The coaches like their pairs and we have some big name guys that fit together well so I'm kind of the guy that's going to bounce around and move to different places. I'm ok with that. I like playing with every guy in this line-up and there's not really a single guy that I don't like playing with. It's been fun getting to know each player. It's hard to play with new guys but now that I've played with everyone I think it's a little bit easier. Knowing which hand they are and how they play has definitely helped me. I like moving up and down the line-up.

On hearing his name called to start the overtime against Buffalo:

Like I said, we've got some studs so I never think I'm going to go first in overtime but at the same time the coach likes to go with players that are "going" and I think I had a good game two night's ago. I wasn't too shocked but it was definitely humbling and it was nice for me. Zero shots and 8 against is not the start that I wanted but it was good for me to get out there.
