Columbus Blue Jackets Head Coach Ken Hitchcock

Commenting on tonight's game…
"The first period, we started off looking like the Harlem Globetrotters. We were moving the puck well. I thought we had flashes where we were really crisp… and then I thought we did the things we needed to do in the third."

Commenting on defenseman Fedor Tyutin
"The guy that stood out for me was Tyutin. We've not had a player that can play like Fedor can. To me, Tyutin allows us to do things transition-wise that are going to be important as we move forward. He makes touch pass plays and head-mans the puck very well."

Commenting on right wing Jon Mirasty…
"He knows his role. I think the thing that surprised me is he's a player you feel comfortable putting on the ice. He knows how to play the game."

Commenting on right wing Jakub Voracek…
"The thing is, as (Jakub) is learning to play, he still gets points. I think that just shows you what his top end is … he makes two or three plays every night that are just no-brainers (to him)."

Commenting on the team…
"With our lineup that we're going to play, were not going to have a problem making plays. We have a lot of work to do to get players up to speed chemistry-wise. As much work as we have to do, we have a lot of potential to get better. We have some skill, some talent and some moxie."

Blue Jackets Left Wing Rick Nash

Commenting on the team's new defensemen…
"I thought they were great. There were a lot of tape-to-tape passes. I thought (Christian) Backman and (Fedor) Tyutin were great and (Mike) Commodore logged a lot of minutes and played great defensively. Overall, it was their first game, and I thought they played good."

 

Commenting on the chemistry with (Derick) Brassard and (Kristian) Huselius…
"We're stilling trying to figure out each others game. For the first time playing with each other I thought we played pretty well."

 

Blue Jackets Goalie Pascal Leclaire

Commenting on his first preseason performance…
"I thought it got better as the game went along. The first period was a little rough, but I think it's like that every year. The more the game went on the more I got comfortable and the more I felt better about myself."

 

Commenting on the new defensemen…

"I think they blocked a lot of shots. They used their bodies a lot. They didn't give them too much and they’re really mobile. They did a great job of getting the puck out of the zone. They played really well."
