Marian Gaborik spoke with reporters following the Kings’ morning skate earlier this morning in Winnipeg.
Several additional Gaborik quotes:
On a reuniting with Willie Mitchell:
For sure. Willie was a part of that team in Minny. We had a good run together there. We made the Stanley Cup semis. He’s a good guy. I’ve known him for a while. He’s definitely [familiar] face here.
On his impression of the Kings prior to joining them:
I’d heard nothing but good things. You can see it also with their play, the way they won the Cup. The group, they’re a very hard team to play against, being on the other side. It should be a good fit, so I’m looking forward to it.
On Anze Kopitar’s impression around the league:
He’s one of the top playmakers in the league. He’s proven himself to be a leader and a Stanley Cup champion. We played in the All-Star Game together, so I got to talk to him a bit there. I’m very excited to be his winger.
