Stoll Has Special Message for LA Kings Fans

Stoll tributeIt was an emotional night at Staples Center on Thursday. After sharing the comments down below with media members gathered in the Minnesota Wild locker room, Jarret Stoll wanted to share a special message with Kings fans…

His comments from the media scrum…

On joining the Minnesota Wild:

“I think it’s a really good fit. It’s, obviously, a Western Conference team that plays tight and has some skill, quickness. From day one, coming here, they explained it to me pretty straight-forward. It’s nice to be wanted and [for them to have] a role for you on the team… Just having my role, I know what that is. And the coaching staff here knows what that is. Getting a chance to play, it energizes you, you get that focus and you know what you have to do. I’m not asked to do anything above what I can do. I just do what I can to try and help the team win… [and] I’m just trying to take advantage of it.”

On what he was feeling after the thank you video played on the jumbotron:

“It was great, it was awesome; chills everywhere throughout your body and I wanted it to end as quickly as possible. I didn’t want to get – I would’ve got emotional, or started to maybe. I just looked at Lewie in the faceoff and said, ‘Let’s go.’ ”

On memories of playing in Los Angeles and seeing former teammates:

“I saw some guys the other night and tonight I’ll see some more guys – just chatting, you know, for a bit. We’re staying the night [in Los Angeles], so it’s a chance to catch up with some guys. I have a lot of friends here, everybody with the team, with the organization, people that work in the office, everybody. It’s good to see [familiar] faces. Its been a while, so it’s always nice.”
