“Some moments were not great for me. It was a hard situation. It was not a perfect season for me, for sure. The only good part of it was the first eight or 10 games I played (back in Russia). Otherwise, bad season.”
– Columbus’ Nikita Filatov, who left the team to play in the Kontinental League last season. Filatov will return to the Blue Jackets for the 2010-11 season.
