Aaron Ward Press Conference

New, comments

Aaron Ward met with the press at 3PM today at the RBC.  You can click here to listen to the entire press conference.  Some highlights:

  • Was shocked, got the call today on the 7th green on the golf course.
  • It's usually not good when you see you are getting a call from your GM in the offseason.
  • Will miss Boston.  It's a great sports town and he felt like he was a key component to their success last season.
  • But is very happy to be back here.  Is familiar with several players and is looking forward to coming season.
  • Situation between him and Walker is water under the bridge.  He has known "Walks" for some time and knows that he is a good guy.  Will shake his hand when he sees him.  He's excited to play with him.
  • He is willing to accept any role the team gives him.  Looks forward to skating with Pitkanen, but if he has another partner, that is fine as well.   
  • Is closest with Ray Whitney on the team.  They have stayed in contact since the Cup win in 2006.
