Newly acquired forward Kyle Turris practiced with his Senators teammates for the first time today.
As you can see in the video (via the Ottawa Citizen), there were plenty of reporters on hand to watch the former Coyote stretch. And after that, they got to ask him some questions.
Clearly it’s going to be a different experience playing in a Canadian city, with all the media attention that goes with it. Just ask the Canadian media, which loves to trumpet that particular angle.
“I don’t think I’ve seen this many cameras for a number of years now,” Turris told the assembled throng. “It’s a lot different pressure but I’m ready for it.”
The Sens host the Sabres tomorrow.
PS — Sportsnet’s Ian Mendes reports that Turris was skating on a line with Nick Foligno and Erik Condra.
