Interview w/ Linus Omark

This audio is from an interview I had with Linus Omark on November 4th, after the OKC Barons practice in Abbotsford. Quotes from this interview [specifically: “I want to play (in the) NHL and if no one lets me do that then I’m going to go to Europe,”] ended up in the Edmonton Journal, PuckDaddy, The Hockey News, Vancouver Sun among others.

An exasperated yet Linus Omark speaking candidly. In fairness to Omark his words are driven by his passion to play the game at the top level and that is a drive any GM would be happy to see from a player. My takes is that Omark will do whatever it takes to get back to the NHL no matter what team it is with. He is happy to be an Oiler and wants to feel accepted as a part of the time but for now he feels like an outsider and not an important part of the team.
