“I don’t see much,” he said. I do my part every time my name is called. Whether I play 20 minutes or 12, I’m ready to go. “
Meryl, who received the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday, described herself as a free-spirited and easy-going person.
“The team is great, I want to join the team and be a part of it,” said the Canadians’ American defender. I am glad to have the opportunity to play meaningful games. ”
Merrill particularly sees participation in the playoffs, which does not happen in Detroit. The full-back already has 16 games of experience in the playoffs, the games he played with the Vegas Golden Knights between 2018 and 2020.
In the short term, Meryl will only be able to meet his new CH teammates next week when the Montreal club is in Edmonton. Hobbs will face the Oilers on April 19th and 21st.
Born in Oklahoma, Meryl grew up in Michigan.
“Who knows how hard it is to leave a family knowing they can’t come to Canada,” the defender commented.
“It was always one of my favorite places to play,” Meryl Bell said of the center.
