Quotable: Mark Fistric on his return to Dallas

Here are a few quotes from Edmonton Oilers Mark Fistric, who will be playing in Dallas tonight for the first time since being traded from the Stars to the Oilers earlier this season.

On being back in Dallas

 “It’s kind of cool. I was a Star for X amount of years and I don’t think I’ve ever even been in this dressing room. So it’s good. To me, it’s just another game. I’ve got to treat it like that. We’re on a road trip here. It’s just a trade. It’s hard to get through that process but I think that is all behind me now. I’ve moved forward and to me it’s just another game.”

On being in game two of a nine-game road trip

 “No, I don’t think I’ve ever had one [a road trip this long]. I think the most I’ve had is seven in junior, but never been on the road for this long before. It’ll be pretty good, especially for me to get to know the guys a little bit better. No better way to do it than on the road with each other 24/7.”

On if he has fit in well in Edmonton

 “Yeah, from the first day I got here, the guys were super awesome. They welcomed me in like I was with the organization for a long time. It made me feel very comfortable and very welcomed.”

On if he thinks the Dallas fans will give him a warm reception

 “I don’t know. It’s tough to say. Dallas fans are unpredictable. I think that when I played here, I gave my heart and soul to the organization. I tried to play my hardest every night. That’s all I could have asked myself to do and the organization could have asked of me. I’ve moved on. It’s just part of it.”
