Q: Did you feel like you got a fair shake in Pittsburgh, or did you feel like every mistake here could be your last? There was always a perception that you were on thin ice during your time here.
A: I was absolutely given a fair shake in Pittsburgh. I was an undrafted free agent out of college who signed an AHL contract, on this contract I could not be called up to play in the NHL. I worked my way up with lots of help from everyone in the entire organization. It was a team effort. Pittsburgh taught me how to play hockey and turned me into the player I am today. I am forever grateful to how I was treated.

Q: Will you look back on your time in Pittsburgh in a favorable way?
A: Every single day.

Q: What's Bruce Boudreau been like to deal with? He came across as quite an entertaining guy while with the Washington Capitals during the filming of 24/7.
A: He has been great so far. Extremely fun to play for, and really lets players play to their strengths.
