‘I never actually talked to them; I just knew they were at my games a lot. I remember playing Belleville in the playoffs, and I knew they had scouts at the first two games so I wanted to play well. I’d had some talks with the Rangers, and my agent told me about a few other teams that were interested. Buffalo was always around but we never talked. With the history of my dad playing in Buffalo, I always thought it would be cool if they took me. When they called my name my dad was obviously pretty excited.’
