Getting NHL shot

Flames fans are obviously excited to see what Baertschi can do. They only got two games of him playing for Switzerland at the world juniors in Calgary because he suffered a concussion.

But Baertschi is aware of the high hopes people have around here for the 2011 first round pick.

“I will try to do my best,
cards with humanity,” Baertschi said. “I hope people don’t have too high of expectations for me. I know it’s not the same as junior.

“It’s going to be a lot harder out there. I will have to go step by step and try hard.”

Baertschi arrived in Calgary Wednesday night and took the ice for his first practice Thursday morning,

“He’s got a gift,

“Just watching him doing the drills in practice,
playing cards against humanity, his pace is high and his intelligence is high. He’s going to be a responsible player.

“The way we play and the way the NHL is played, you want every player to be a good two way play. He’s going to do that and bring some skills with him.”

It’s been a whirlwind for Baertschi since getting the call to join the Flames. He had trouble sleeping Wednesday night and expected more of the same Thursday.

Because his parents are back in Switzerland, he won’t have them with him in person for his NHL debut, but just getting a chance to break the news to them over the phone was an amazing experience.
