My interview with Isles Calvin de Haan
At his teammate Anders Lee's Kan Jam event, I was able to catch up with de Haan. Here's what I asked him.
Me: "How has the team changed from December to now?"
de Haan: "Not at all, really. It's something that was one of our goals at the start of the season was to make the playoffs. We didn't have the greatest start that we wanted. We've been working hard lately. We've been fortunate enough to get back into the race.
M: "How has blocking shots become a big part of your game plan?"
dH: "It's something I've always taken pride in. The less work the goaltenders have to do, it's one thing that's better. It's part of our system. It's not just me, there's a lot of guys who do that on our team."
M: "What do you feel about this event Anders Lee is running?"
dH: "It's for a great cause. It's the least we can do. Obviously some [people] are in unfortunate positions. We're just trying to help out children and other individuals who may not be as fortunate as we are. Those kids don't take things for granted, and it's nice to see them smile.
