Connor Brown met with the media as a special guest coach at the TML Hockey School.
On the ongoing contract negotiations:
It’s patience. All I can do is continue to work hard throughout the summer and just take care of my part and let my agent and management take care of the rest.
I’m confident [it will get done]. Things will sort itself out. Just got to be patient.
On some of the trade rumours kicking around:
I’m trying not to read any of those. I’m staying off Twitter. I’m just trying to take care of my lane — get better and stronger with the things I need to do on the ice. Off the ice will sort itself out.
On the team’s outlook on the season and the offseason additions:
We feel good. We feel like we have a really good team coming in. You feel the fans are excited about this upcoming season, and so are the players. It’ll be a fun time come October.
Patty has been around a long time and is going to bring experience to our team. He’s got a good winning tradition. It will be awesome to play with him.
I remember playing against Hainsey last year. Great stick and another veteran guy who will add a nice piece of character to our locker room.
