At the gym with Michael McCarron and Torrey Mitchell

August 26, 2019


Well I knew this was a big summer for me. It’s… Going into my third year as a pro — my last
year on my entry level [contract], and… I want to make an impression coming into camp,
and, I figured there’s no better place than, to train… to train in Montreal, with great,
great people to be with. And, a veteran presence with Mitchey, and great trainers, and… Well, this is my first summer training one-on-one
with another guy who’s been in the league for 11 years… Maybe 12, I don’t even know how many it’s been,
but he definitely showed me what it… what it takes to stay in the league that long. I mean, he’s one of the hardest workers I’ve
ever worked out with. I mean, sometimes you look at him like he’s crazy,
but again that’s why he’s been in the league for so long, and, it’s definitely helped
me train harder and harder this summer, training with Torrey. I just want to get quicker. I want to be… I want to be more agile on the ice. I want to be able to… to take pucks to the net easier,
and spin off guys, and that’s fast-twitch muscles, and… That’s what I need to work on, and I’ve been
working on that the whole summer, and… We’re here five days a week, and every other
Saturday we come in for a little cardio session, and… So sometimes it’s six days a week, and… I’m on the ice three days a week,
but that just recently started. You can’t get on the ice too early, because
the season is a long season, so… We come in here for two hours every day, and… It’s a… It’s a battle. It’s hard, and I’m definitely starting to
see some transitions in my body, and… That’s what… that’s what makes you happy
and keeps you coming back. Nothing like waking up in the morning with
two egg whites already cooked, hey Mitchey? A bowl of oats… No wonder he… No wonder he’s got so much energy every day. Last year was great, I mean… I got a great opportunity, and… It was tough. It was a tough opportunity. I did well. I mean… I think there are some things I needed
to do better, but it’s a new coach who came in, and new beginning coming in with Claude [Julien], and… I just want to come in to camp and show him
that I really want that spot, and… It’s going to be exciting. I’m really excited for it.
