Raitis Ivanans is thrilled to be back in the NHL.
Ivanans was recalled from Abbotsford of the AHL where the enforcer had three points and 15 penalty minutes in 13 games. He only played once last season as he suffered a concussion in the opening game when he fought Steve MacIntyre, then with the Oilers. "You can't really explain it," Ivanans said. "It's feels great. You realize how much you take it for granted when you're here," Ivanans said. "And then when you're down and come back, you just want to grab it and never let it go." We wish him the best of luck in his return.
