I want to thank each one of you for your support and words of encouragement during this past month. It is my dream to be able to finish my NHL career with the same organization that it began with, so I am excited to continue playing for the Dallas Stars.
The week of my new deal with the Stars was trying both mentally and emotionally, and I am glad it is behind me. I take comfort in knowing that I made the right decision. Your letters and emails kept my spirits high, and I appreciate all that you continue to send.
I can't wait to get back on the ice this season. I look forward to seeing many of you on opening day, October 5th, at the American Airlines Center.
