The collective energy from the city; people have to realize what a difference that makes to us and the players. It’s a great place to play hockey. You feel a part of something. You feel appreciated. When you give an honest effort, there’s positive feedback from everyone. And that’s more than you can ask for. There are cities out there where you’re invisible and you don’t have the same support… I feel like I’m fortunate. I’ve met some great people and some great fans.
I do appreciate everyone who’s supported me. With a little bit of an uncertainty, you don’t want to miss an opportunity to say thank you."
