JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

"He (Lyle) has been pretty solid for us in all aspects. To be honest, I didn't know a whole lot about the player. We obviously signed him out of junior. I never really saw him and we didn't have the opportunity to see him in rookie camp like we usually would. He came in really with a blank canvas with our staff, but he's been great - he's been solid.

One thing I like about Brady is he's really hard on the puck. He obviously has a hard shot, which you saw today, but every pass is hard. It's a pro pass. In battles, he's able to win pucks. He's obviously working on certain aspects of his game to transition to professional hockey, but it's been a terrific start. We're able to play him in most situations, which is a lot to say for a young rookie defenseman coming out of junior."
