“I have to learn to do everything a little quicker so I can succeed out there. In Europe, we have bigger rinks, but a smaller offensive zone, so here you have a little more space to do something. In Sweden, I was in the corners and behind the nets, but in the Olympics (in Vancouver on an NHL rink), there’s so little space, you can’t do that. You have to change your game a little.”
– Mats Zuccarello Aasen, who signed with the New York Rangers this summer after leading the Swedish League in scoring last season.
