Say What?!? - July 13

''Niklas was a big part of our success last year. He is part of our core that is going to be together for a long time. I'm happy for him. He's a quiet leader among our defensive group. He gets overshadowed because we have some other superstars there. But he was really effective for us all year long. He's only going to get better. He's 23 years old.''
