Here’s the third and final part of Thursday’s Q-and-A with Jonathan Quick.
Question: Is it still weird to see Jack Johnson out there with the Blue Jackets?
Quick: “That’s part of the game. Guys get traded. Guys get called up and sent down. Nothing’s guaranteed in this league. It is what it is. You hate to see him go, but you know it’s part of the game. It’s a business. I’ve talked with him. He’s happy there. He really loves it. That’s all you hope for, that guys are happy where they’re at.”
Question: Did you see he’s leading the league in ice time?
Quick: “I did notice that (laughs). He likes to play, so that’s good. That could be a reason he’s happy There. He’s playing a ton. It’s a big, big part of the game. They’ve got a nice group of young players. You can see they’re growing something special. You’re just happy that he’s happy.”
