“I am excited to be back in America. I love being here. This is the league that gave me my opportunity, gave me my chance to be a professional. I’m happy to come back in my prime and be able to make a difference and not come back when I was passed it.”
“That’s the ideal situation: you want to come in and get straight to scoring goals,” he added. “Hopefully it will be a smooth transition and I’m excited about coming up here. The atmosphere of the game here is just incredible.”
