Media: Can you believe Ovi is now the oldest player on the team?


*deadpan* Yeah, I can. *laughs* No, I just think it’s so cool that he got his own cereal.


Have you tried it?


No, I haven’t tried it. But I asked him if he could bring some, because my kids want some. So, hopefully I’ll get it for free.


Nick, going back to Ovi– oldest guy on the team you know.


*laughs* What’s that? Yeah, yeah.


Going back to him, speaking to him earlier, he said you guys had been together since day one. What does your friendship with him mean to you?


It means a lot. I mean, I think he, he’s been, he meant a lot for me, especially the first couple years. Took me under his wing… and then, when we got older, I took him under my wing. *smiles* No, it means a lot, he’s a great guy, he’s so funny, I think… there’s never a boring day around that guy. It’s just the way he is.


What did you say when you saw him after the bicycle accident?

Backstrom: *heavy sigh* The first thing I asked him, “did you wear a helmet?” He said, “yeah.” So… that’s Ovi. *laughs* Summer with Ovi.


Has anyone, has a player ever gotten him so bad as the bicycle accident got him?


No, I think that was the worst I’ve seen him. *laughs* He’s gotta be careful. He should maybe just stick to hockey, right?

Holy shit, Nick cannot stop smiling fondly and laughing while talking about Ovi for the a good chunk of his media day interview.
