Here are some interesting quotes about Pitkanen made by Hitch, they are old comments though.

Hitch, coach in Philadelphia when Pitkanen broke in, has his own take. He says Pitkanen hasn’t been the same player since he suffered knee and ankle injuries in 2005-06, a campaign in which the big Finn was tearing it up before he got injured and was limited to 58 games.

“Look at 2005-06,” Hitchcock said. “You’re going to see 46 points. What people don’t realize is he had 41 points in 40 games before he got hurt.

“He was over a point a game before he got hurt. He got injured, then he came back and got injured again. He went knee and then ankle… he has not been the same player since.

“He was a reckless, go-to-the-net guy. He was getting game-winners. He’s become a very careful player now. He’s missed games this year with a knee, hasn’t he?”
