QUOTE(S) TO NOTE:


“I think he has embraced the role, not only on the ice, but off the ice. His play just keeps getting better and better. He’s really doing a lot of things that we need away from the rink to help us get to where we want to go. He’s a guy that does things the right way. He’s a team guy, he works hard on and off the ice. I just love his approach.”
— David Quinn on Mika Zibanejad
