Captain's Corner - Whalers, Quenneville, Kevin Shand, Flint

Each week during the 2013-14 season, Metro Jets’ captain Josh Beleski will give his thoughts on topics surrounding the team as it makes its way through the North American 3 Hockey League season, the 25th for the Jets as a junior franchise. 

-- On getting swept at home last weekend by the Wisconsin Whalers.

Tough and embarrassing – we were all over the place on the ice. We had no discipline, nor pride in our games last weekend. The guys were definitely disappointed in themselves because we worked hard all week long and then didn’t do a single thing that we worked on in practice in the games.

-- On the team adjusting to new coach Justin Quenneville.

Practices with Q have been great. I think the guys are adjusting just fine. Q is a great guy, he is always cracking jokes and smiling, but he also demands a lot from us and wants us to be the best that we can be. That's why I think the guys like him so much because he challenges us to work harder everyday and demands a little more each and every day.

-- On new forward Kevin Shand, acquired from Springfield of the NAHL.

He looked good this past weekend. He is a smart, hard-working player. I think he is going to be a great fit for this team. He just needs to keep working hard everyday and play the way he can and he will be just fine in this league.

-- On playing the Flint Jr. Generals at home Saturday night.

This weekend is going to be really tough. Flint is a good hockey team and every time we play them, it’s a very intense and hard-hitting game. If we play the way we can and play the way Q wants us to, then there is no reason why we shouldn't walk away with two points this weekend.
