Andreas Athanasiou: “That guy is known for hitting high, not really worrying about the puck out there and almost trying to hurt people. That’s his game; that’s what he does. He’s an $8 million man with zero goals, so he has to figure out how to do something when making that much. If you can’t help the team, I guess you try to hurt guys on the other team.” [Chicago Sun-Times]
Jordan Binnington: Always at the center of something fun.
