@floridamermaidd: What are your plans for the offseason?

First off, I’ll be playing at the World Championships. I’ll be heading over there at the end of the month. I’d obviously rather be in the playoffs right now, but it’s a good consolation to be able to continue playing hockey and have something to fight for. It’s always an honor to wear the Canadian flag and represent your country. I really enjoyed it last year and I’m looking forward to it this year.

@Reemer13: What was it like having Jaromir Jagr on your team?

At times, being able to play with a guy like that, you’d just be standing there and it would sink in just how much he had accomplished it. Whenever there would be an in-game announcement to congratulate him on another one of his milestones, you’d really realize how long he’s been around and how much success he’s had. It’s been pretty cool. I haven’t managed to swipe anything from him, but I do have a few photos.
