On his new linemate, Brad Richards:
You could say that he's a good player.
On his first hat trick:
I was really happy to get the hat trick, my first in the NHL. Maybe all of those goals, I had the easiest part. I just had to get my stick on the ice. Overall, the game was fun to play.
On his last hat trick:
It was seven years ago, my first training camp, my first exhibition game with Florida. We played against Carolina. I had a hat trick in that game. I ended up making the team and playing my first NHL game and all that stuff, but it took me 30 goals after the hat trick to score another goal. So, I had to wait for a little while to get the first NHL goal. Hopefully now I won't have to wait 30 games to score the next goal.
