Braden Holtby


Last quote by Braden Holtby

We'd be kidding ourselves if we're not going to have some growing pains along the way. It's just how we handle them and what we do with them. How do we fight through them and get better? Because we know we have the capability in this locker room. It doesn't take one week or two weeks to build a team chemistry and a team identity. It takes a while. As long as we're working at it and have full commitment, it'll come sooner rather than

You just got to focus on the percentages, where [pucks] usually go if you're taking them away. There's some I've played that you can't really do anything about, some that I'd like to change a bit. [I'm] trying to overcompensate, almost, for the bad bounces at times with the screens and traffic and interference in front. It's one of those times you've got to battle, look at video a little more than usual to see certain ways to fight through

It was nice to feel the puck a bit. There wasn't many in the first two periods that were clean. Every series is different, obviously. This one is completely different than most we've played in the past, just the way the puck's going in and the way things are happening. It's a good mental test for

He's stepped in and played phenomenally. Ever since the other game here in the regular season, he's flying, using his legs, making the quick plays. He's a great player, and I think it hasn't been an easy road for him the last couple years with deadline moves and such. I think this time, he's much more nature. He says, You know what, I'm a good player, and I'm just going to show it when I get an opportunity.' That's what he's doing. He's going to be a good player for a long time, and he's showing what he can

I'm fine. It was just a practice play. It

Those last few games, he looked extremely good. I mean, there was probably less pressure. He just went and played, which is good. That's a good way to play. Obviously leading up to the trade deadline and stuff and rumors, that's hard to play. So, he's in a good spot, and I think our whole group is in a good spot right now. When he gets an opportunity, if he gets an opportunity, he'll be

There's been absolutely no hiccups in our relationship. He loves to work. He loves to get better. The criticism is straight and to the point, and that's what I like: honesty. There's no bashing. There's no, You need to do this. You need to do that.' It's: 'We could do this better. We could do that better.' He's the best goalie coach in the world – probably ever – for a reason. He sees the person, sees the game, sees where the game is going before the game goes there and makes adjustments to it. Not many people have

Preparing for pressure as a goalie is something I've learned over my whole life. I'm used to it. I'm ready for

It's what I'm built for, to prepare for hockey

Apr 11 2017

It seems like a long time ago. It was a completely different world then. I still knew that I had the same base, the same ability. The saving grace through all of that. It was more frustration with what I was being told to do. . . . It was a growing experience, fighting through all of that to keep a positive frame of mind at the rink, to keep working hard even though you're kind of working yourself into a hole. It was just one of those experiences that's frustrating and negative at the time, but I learned a lot from

Apr 06 2017

You obviously want to not play either Pittsburgh or Columbus in the first round, but in the end it doesn't matter. You got to go through good teams, and hopefully this just gives us a little bit more of an

I have no idea if guys will or not, that's a personal decision, (but) I wouldn't be able to go away from my team here. I couldn't do it. That's just personal. But everyone's priorities are kind of different. He plays a big role on Team Russia. But as me, I've always liked the group that I've been with through the year. That's my No. 1

Apr 01 2017

I think we got away from the things we were having success with. To be honest, the last two periods here, I thought we got back to that. I thought we were playing really well at five-on-five, back to how we have success. Maybe it was just a bit of a wake-up call and that's maybe a good thing at this time, and we'll have a big game against

I've just always viewed fashion as bringing out your personality. It took a while being on a hockey team. You don't know what you can get away with or whatnot, guys bugging you or giving you a hard time about things. The older I've gotten, the more comfortable I am. I don't really care about that anymore. I just do my own

It shows consistency, I guess. I don't know. It's just one of those goals that you set at the start of the year and try to get

Mar 22 2017

His skill is pretty outstanding. It's been a surprise to us that he hasn't had 30 before. Because the way he can handle the puck, the things he can do with it full speed, is pretty amazing. He's been big for our team this year. … He brings that energy every game. He plays hard, goes to those hard areas to get those goals and you don't see many skilled guys that love doing that, that love going to those hard areas and getting hit and hitting people, but he's one of

It's fun to see someone go through adversity and come through it. You see his game now, and you can tell he's worked on every little detail to try and make himself best. It's fun to watch and fun to learn

Mar 14 2017

That's something I worked on a lot, the mental side of things and that consistency part. I wanted to get to a point where guys weren't thinking, He might steal us a game, or you don't know what kind of goalie he's going to be.' I wanted to be the same every night. That's the easiest goalie to play in front of as a team, when you know what you're going to

Mar 13 2017

Any adversity is a good thing if you use it the right way. If we're good enough to be a championship team, we will get through this. We'll push through and be better. But that's something we have to do. . . . We have to realize that us as individuals have to be better and more committed to create a better team game, and that's something we'll work
