I cordially invite you into my head. Simply put I'm a dreamer who holds her mind and heart on paper because that is the only place it is safe. I'm also a huge hockey fan!
So mature is Kasperi Kapanen that Maatta insisted he’s not the mentor but rather the mentee.
“I think he already knows more than I do about this,” Maatta said. “He’s really mature and knows what it takes to be an NHL player because he’s been around the NHL for a long time.
“I don’t know if I’ve taught him anything.”
There is one thing Maatta will admit to.
He said he’s been playing the part of tour guide, driving Kapanen around Pittsburgh, to the movies and out to dinner. Maatta admits he’s a sucker for a good steak. Kapanen prefers pasta.
“There are so many good steak places around here,” Maatta said. “He’s not big on steak. He actually complains when I want to go to a steak place. He likes pasta.””
