Keith Yandle was out at the South Florida Hockey Academy on Thursday when, by coincidence, both myself and Sr. Harvey showed up.
So we talked to him.
Yandle seemed very excited to get going and has settled into his new digs near Fort Lauderdale beach with his wife and two small children.
Yandle said Florida being very aggressive as well as having a good, young team helped sway him to sign before becoming a free agent on July 1. I'm sure the seven-year deal didn't hurt either.
Anyway, check out the story.
The video interview is below.
