Comments from the Teleconference:

– Really happy to get the deal done. Wanted to be in Winnipeg long term. Really happy that Winnipeg believed in me.

– Didn’t have the best start to my career and the Jets believed in me. Wanted to be in Winnipeg long term.

– My job to go out there and help the team win. Really excited to be here for 7 years. Really happy that Little & Wheeler signed as well

– #1 goal is to win a championship. We’re a better team now. It’s felt like home for me since I arrived in Winnipeg. First class org.

– Want to be the best player I can be. Committed to hard work and to the team. Have to move forward as a group.

– Looking forward to moving forward as a group. Charlie Huddy has been a tremendous influence on me since day 1.

– Have felt comfortable in Winnipeg, in the city and in the dressing room. Always felt the long term deal would get done.

– Very humbling that Winnipeg wanted me there long term, as I wanted to be there as well.

– Being an outdoorsman, Winnipeg is a great place for that. Great hockey town. Exciting city to live in.

– Always nice to be back in Winnipeg. Been here 3 or 4 times this summer already.

– I’m worrying about playing my best every single game, and hopefully that will be enough to impress Team USA staff for Sochi Olympics.

– Always thought of myself as a leader, both on the ice and vocally. Not going to change how I act.

– I’ll play wherever the team wants me to play, left side or right side. Haven’t been asked to but we’ll see where that goes.

– I see myself as a leader, regardless of the fact I may not have a “letter” (Assistant Captaincy) on my jersey.

– I think we need to be harder to play against, and be better defensively. This group has been together, and grown up together.

– I think we need to be harder to play against, and be better defensively. This group has been together, and grown up together.

– Yes I think we have what it takes to be a stanley cup contender. It’s cliche, but I believe it. This group can do good things together.

– Most of my coaches have said I’m a little high strung on the bench, but Charlie has been a good calming influence on me.
