So, hey guys, welcome to my hometown. This is where I grew up. I spent most of the summer here in Dubnica. It’s changed a lot since I was growing up here. But we’re becoming more modern. I always like to come back here and spend the summer with people I know here and my friends and my family. I think here and in Montreal, you can feel the European atmosphere and I think that’s why, even in Montreal I still feel like it’s home. We did reorganize a little bit of the hockey here. Me and a few other NHL players are trying to help to put hockey on the right track. As of now, Slovak hockey has fallen a little bit behind. You can see it in the Draft when they draft younger players, there aren’t so many [Slovaks] anymore. I’m trying to help or support my hometown team here. For me, they helped me become the player I am now and the person [I am]. I grew up here so I’m trying to return the favor back. This is our stadium here in Dubnica. It’s not the Bell Centre, that’s for sure, but like I said, people are happy they have an ice rink here, they can play and skate here and it’s enough. We are in reno mode where they’re doing a rebuilding and they’re planning to do another stadium right here next to it. I’m trying to help as much as I can. I started my hockey career here when I was six. My brothers used to play for the men’s team here in Slovakia for Dubnica. And later on, they went to Canada or Germany and around the world. So this is where we all started. Over there you have the wall of players who played here. For such a small city, there are a lot of players who started their careers here. I’m extremely proud to be from this city. People love hockey here. Everybody, growing up, wants to play hockey. They have a lot of role models here when they’re growing up. Same as me, for example, Pavol Demitra was one of mine. They were great examples for me. For sure, Pavol is one of the legends here in this town, for sure. This is in honor of his memory. He did a lot for this team and for this town and we obviously miss him. He was a great guy, a great human being. He helped a lot of people here. Obviously he’s missed.
