Quote
On being a part of the Philadelphia Flyers line: "I am like the red-headed step-child on that line. But that's what I try to do. I don't try to be the player that I am not. I try to complement. I try to win my battles in the corners and keep pucks alive for them and not be a hindrance to the line. I get in trouble when I try to do too much. So I am pretty good at catching myself and then getting back down to simpler play." delcotimes.com
