Montreal Canadians Opportunity Cole Coffeldt began his professional career with Laval Rocket and wanted to follow the steps one by one before establishing himself in the National Hockey League (NHL).
Speaking at his first press conference since signing his three-year entry agreement on Saturday, the American said Monday that he is excited about this new phase that will soon begin for him. Watch the video above.
Among other things, General Manager Mark Bergewin’s decision to send him to the American Hockey League (AHL) seemed right in his eyes.
“It’s the best decision for my future right now,” Cofield said. They have a good team. I’m happy to be a part of it. […] It helps me a lot. There was a good coach there. ”
“It simply came to our notice then. It was a big step in my career. This is untrue now. I’m anxious. I want to do my part. ”
When asked if he believed he could jump straight from the NCAA to the NHL, Cofield was cautious.
“For me, it’s hard to say,” he said. I believe in myself, my talent and my work ethic. But the AHL is a good league and a lot of good players went there. I play as I know how to do it. “
Before joining his new teammates, Cofield will have to go through a mandatory quarantine, which is still 14 days away. He still has the right to fulfill his professional responsibilities after seven days.
Until then, he wants to do “his homework” to be as ready as possible.
The 20-year-old also revealed that he gained mass during his senior year in Wisconsin, which means he now weighs 170 pounds.
