To be honest, I think I\'m just thinking about my ankle.
I don\'t know where it will be.
Our flight was delayed so I was in Minnesota all day-
This is mainly what I think in my head. I just want to go home.

He had an MRI in Vancouver on Wednesday morning.
Simply according to the feeling, he thinks his ankle is at 80-per-
Health interval.
Nevertheless, he said he did admit that he was very excited in Vancouver and asked if he could ice skate at Rogers Arena.
Let\'s keep our ankles healthy first, and he realizes that\'s the right answer.
Some of him were disappointed by the end of his Michigan year.
He said he never thought that he would not finish the season and that during the World Youth Championship he might just be in Vancouver for a while and not back in Michigan, it was all stupid.
He had hoped to see his Wolves go further in the NCAA playoffs.
They apparently did not eavesdrop on him.

\"Will he become a powerful country?
The guy who plays in NHL?
\"Yes, he is,\" Green said after skating on Wednesday morning.
\"But I don\'t need him to have expectations, he has to come in and run the Game of Thrones and be the one who can turn things around overnight.
Elias Paterson said he admired Hughes\'s relaxed, elite skating from a distance and was looking forward to seeing him up close.
\"The way he moves the ice hockey, his skating ability,\" he said . \".
\"He is a very good skater, a fast skater, and the ice hockey is very good.
When you know that D can get puck without being stuck in the low position, it helps a lot for the forward.
He has created many opportunities for himself and his teammates.
\"It looks like his skating skills are very low and his strength is enhanced,\" Petson added . \".
\"It\'s funny because sometimes it looks like he won\'t be 100, but he still flies in.
The rookie striker also said he could guess how Hughes felt early in the new team.
\"Of course, it is important for him to accept it.
I remember what I looked like when I first arrived.
There are many new faces and names to learn.
He may forget a lot. like I did —
\"But you have to enjoy it,\" he said . \".
Also, it doesn\'t matter how he came here, the game may be faster and the opponent will be bigger and stronger.

He knows what he\'s good at. That\'s why he\'s here.
There may be some nerves, but he knows how to play hockey.
