Cody Eakin believes that his new contract extension will get his season started on the right foot.
Eakin didn't have a contract going into 2014-15 and he missed a good chunk of training camp because of it. He subsequently got off to a slow start before rounding into form later on. "I don’t think anyone was happy how last season started, so this is much better," Eakin said. "I definitely think that getting this done is a positive. I think we’re entering an important time for the team, and I’m excited to be a part of it." Aug 29 - 9:42 AM

Cody Eakin is projected to skate between Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn again on Monday night.
