My first learning curve was right here in this game, ... My first three games, I thought I played excellent. I'm going to have to get over this one and look forward to the next games coming up.

I've been able to handle the pace, ... I've got four goals in four games so I feel pretty good. Obviously today wasn't a great day, but hopefully I can come back next week and have a good one.

We're trying to bid for the Memorial Cup when it comes back to the OHL and we're getting a new arena, ... It will be a long time, but I think it will be a great experience too.

I think we need a road game to kind of find ourselves a bit.

There's obviously going to be attention since I'm the youngest guy in the league and the first guy allowed in under the exceptional player rule, ... I don't go into games thinking about the pressure, that everyone is watching.

Guys are a lot stronger on faceoffs and that's something I've got to work on.

Me and (Generals GM Brad) Selwood will obviously talk about that next summer and see how it goes, ... I'd obviously like to keep going in lacrosse, but if I have to drop it, it's going to happen sooner or later. When I have to do it, I have to do it.

Maybe we're a little complacent at home right now. At the beginning of the season we tried to raise the bar, but here we are again, two straight home losses. I think the road is going to help us out.

They're a hot team and the defending champions. So we have a lot to prove.
