Superstitions: None really. I get ready for the game pretty much the same way. I guess that could be a superstition in a way. I tie my skates at a certain time and just that kind of stuff. Routines more than superstitions.
Favorite NHL Uniform: Growing up, the Blackhawks uniform was always a uniform that everyone loved to talk about and it was always one of my favorites because I actually wore that uniform in junior playing in Portland. I like the looks of that uniform. But I really like the looks of ours, too.
Favorite Arena: I like going to Vancouver and GM Place.
Toughest Team To Play: I think Detroit has always been a tough team for us. We have a real good rivalry and great hockey games with them.
