This is a quote from earlier this year by Patrick Sharp about Ken Hitchcock:

Quote:
Sharp was clear that he wouldn't be lighting up the NHL had he not learned under the stern hand of Hitchcock, who coached Sharp with the Philadelphia Flyers before both men made separate moves to the Central Division, where Sharp's Blackhawks and Hitchcock's Columbus Blue Jackets are rivals.

"He was on me pretty good, but he taught me to compete," Sharp said in a telephone interview. "I wouldn't trade having played for him for anything. He made me into an NHL player. Every day, it was demanding. We have a good relationship, and I make sure to talk to him whenever we play Columbus."
