Kirby Dash is ready for a fresh start

Kirby Dash is ready for a fresh start

The Black Hawks had high hopes when they picked Kirby Deutch for third place in the 2019 draft. After just three years, and despite being 21, they decided Albertans wouldn’t be part of their rebuilding.

“There are always rumors left and right, but I didn’t really expect it. It was kind of a shocker,” he admitted, the day after the deal, during a video conference.

Watch his full press summary in the video above.

Despite the surprise, the main interested party admitted that his brief stay in Windy City was punctuated by ups and downs. Which may have prompted Hawks’ crew to cut ties with him.

In his defense, it must be remembered that Dash sustained a severe wrist injury during the 2021 World Junior Championships. Even the Canadian captain, the midfielder, had to undergo surgery.

In his first full season since returning from injury, the 6-foot-4, 197-pound giant scored 26 points, including nine goals, in 70 games.

Saint Louis reputation

For him, this move to Canadians is an opportunity to start over.

“It would be good for me to make this fresh start. I know I can be offensive, smart with the puck and do play, but I also want to be that center that can be depended on who plays both ways, has a thick presence in the middle and is able to skate .”

Dash is convinced that Al Kindi is the perfect organization to allow him to develop these qualities. Without being asked why, he confirms the presence of Martin St. Louis.

“I spoke to a few players. They love Martin. I think I will handle him well and he will help me improve and become a dominant player.”

“Martin is respected throughout the league. I am excited to have the opportunity to play for him.”

confident in the future

Like Black Hawk, the Canadian in the Reconstruction period. For this reason, we should not expect to see the team aspire to major trophies for a few years.

However, there seems to be a positive vibe within the group of players. As if we trust the future and above all in the team leaders.

This seems to be how Dash felt when talking to some of his new teammates.

“With the management team, the group of coaches, and the many young players who are part of this organisation, the Canadian is on the right track. I can’t wait for September.

unified team

At the time when he was wearing Canada’s colors, Dash was among his teammates, Ryan Suzuki (Nick’s brother), Justin Barron and Kidden Gaul.

Moreover, Kent Hughes, on Thursday evening, stated that he called Barron to find out more about the striker he was about to acquire.

“I haven’t spoken to Justin yet. On the other hand, I’ve been training with Kaiden for four or five years. We’re good friends. When we heard the news, we were texting at the same time. It was a great moment,” he said with a smile on his face. Text messages too. It’s fun to receive those words of welcome. It’s like I’m already part of the team. It makes me feel like the group is united.”
