Just one quick story to share today - Josh Cooper interviewed Ryan Johansen over at Puck Daddy. The interview is a little all over the place, but it's always nice to hear more from one of the players who can be a little quieter at times:
What started to click for you last year? It was a pretty big breakout just in general.
There were a ton of things that fell into place. I started getting bigger and stronger and growing as a person and on the ice, and confidence is a huge thing with every successful player in the league. I got off to a pretty good start and was playing with some great players. Coach had me on all the power plays and just wanted to take that next step in my career and become the player I wanted to be. A lot of things were just going well. One thing I looked back at that I was happy with was how consistent I stayed. Through such a long season it's hard to do and keep going strong.
