Defenseman Simon Despres was quite emotional when he spoke to the Pittsburgh press on Friday.
Despres was dealt from Pittsburgh to the Ducks on Monday and as it happened the Penguins made their only trip to Anaheim on Friday, so the the trade was still very fresh in Despres' mind. "It's been very hectic," Despres said. "I wasn't expecting this. I've just been trying to focus on hockey." Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau has been impressed with the play of Despres so far. "He's a big young man," Boudreau said. "He's physical. And he can make plays, too. So, there's a lot to like about him. He's been very good with the puck, hasn't made any panic turnovers. He might be nervous tonight playing against his old boys. But so far, he's been very good." Despres is not much of a scorer as he has only two goals and 16 assists this season but he gets a lot of hits. Mar 7 - 9:08 AM
