While Blake Comeau officially hails from Meadow Lake, SK, when he was told he had been claimed by the Calgary Flames, he felt like he was heading home.

"My mom and dad live there. My wife has family from there and she's from out west. And my sister's in Edmonton so actually all my family is really close," he told CalgaryFlames.com "I have been out on the east coast for so long that it's going to be a great feeling to come back and be able to play close to my family."

"Having had Brent coach me before, I know the expectations he has and obviously he wants his players to work hard and be competitive. That's something I feel like I have in my game and that I will be able to bring to the team."

"I think I still have a lot to offer. I'm only 25 years old and I feel like I'm still developing and growing as a player. Sometimes I guess a change of scenery just sparks something. Sometimes things just don't pan out the way you plan or the way maybe it did the year before but I'm letting the past be the past. I'm excited to move forward with Calgary."

"I'm really excited. It's great to know that a team wants you to be there," he said "I definitely want to come and make an impact right away."
I think the faith Sutter had in Comeau during the WJC may actually help the situation here as well. I've been watching Comeau play since he was 12 or 13 and he probably played the best hockey of his life during that tournament
