Suzuki comments on Kotkanimi's departure

Nick Suzuki is saddened by the departure of his good friend Jesperi Kotkaneemi who left for the Carolina Hurricanes, but remains realistic in the context of his sport.

Hub, 22, was at the table with his family when he heard the news that Finn had signed a negative offer from his brother Ryan Hurricanes.

“The moment we realized that the National League was a business and that kind of thing was going to happen. It was unfortunate that we lost” KK “, but [Christian] Dvorak is a good acquisition, ”Suzuki said on SportsNet’s” 31 Thoughts: The Podcast “podcast recording.

Montreal Canadians No. 14 said he had spoken to C‌te d’Ivoire about the other day and that it was especially the week that led to his friend’s departure. This is the relationship he should be away from now because he spent time in Carolina.

“It’s hard, because he’s a good friend of mine. It’s part of the business and I learned very quickly when I traded from Vegas,” Suzuki continued.

Compared to the Mark Bergwin Hurricanes offer, some may think that Kotkaneemi was greeted warmly in the Montreal locker room, while Suzuki thinks otherwise.

“I think that’s right. He’s a very nice guy. He’s very well appreciated in the locker room.”

The first duel of the 2021-2022 season between the Canadians and the Hurricanes is scheduled for October 21st. The two young players will have the opportunity to chat again on the ice rink, perhaps even facing each other in a face-off circle.
