When he arrived yesterday, he didn’t have his equipment so he had to borrow LaBarbera’s. He felt a lot more comfortable today with his own stuff. He talks about how being with the Kings can benefit him, even if he doesn’t play, what kind of goalie he is and the situation battling for starts in Manchester.
“It was a little tough in the morning practice yesterday with borrowed stuff, but it was good today.
“Thats why I came over from Sweden obviously, to play up here. Im fortunate to get a chance here. Well see if I get any games, but Im just happy to be here right now. Its better just practicing with better shooters. It helps your game a lot to get a better standard.
“Im not a very big goalie, as you can see. So I rely on my quickness and try to come out and challenge shooters a little bit. I try to read the play to be there before it happens.”
On situation in Manchester, where he got a lot of starts early but not so much lately: “Theres a lot of goalies down there. I think weve used like five during the season. Thats not what youre used to, obviously. I just try to focus on what I can control. During the game, I do as good as I can, and everything else is out of my control anyway.”
