Matheson: "The amount of games I’ve seen Pittsburgh play, I’ve always had it in my head that they play a game that I would love to be a part of. I think the way they play will complement my skillset well." https://t.co/V34m1eS559
Matheson on Crosby: "He was my favorite player growing up... It's pretty impressive to be on the ice with a guy like that. I'm going to go against him every single chance I get. There's no better practice than playing against the best player in the world." https://t.co/wonxC9JEmm

Penguins GM Jim Rutherford on Patric Hornqvist's locker room presence: "There's no question, we will miss his leadership and we will miss him. He's one of the top character players in this league... When you miss a player like that, other players have to fill in the gap."
