Adam Fox NOT a Calder Trophy Finalist

4:49PM: On not being a Calder finalist, Fox said (NYR):

  • “Didn’t really feel too much, obviously it’s nice to be possibly be recognized for it and having your name in the conversation is special. It’s not something I set out to do at the start of the year. A lot of great players, not any disappointment really.”
  • Does it put a competitive chip on your shoulder, “I guess, maybe, it’s just people’s opinions, it’s not up to me to decide. I’m confident in the way that I play, just trying to help the team during the season and going into the playoff is my focus. The recognition is nice here and there but it’s not what I set out for.”
  • On his season, “for me, I just wanted to come in and make an impact. Leaving college, I thought I was ready to make the jump. There were learning curves along the way. For me, I know what I can do with the puck, it’s more away from the puck and as the year went on I got more comfortable with pace and more comfortable with guys on the team. As the season went along I grew as a player and progressed myself and felt good at the end of the year for sure.”
