On Wednesday, Hrivik caught up with Jim Cerny at the rink to discuss his decision to come to camp early and the benefits of doing so, what he has already learned from skating with NHLers, his first professional season last year with the Connecticut Whale, his first upcoming NHL training camp, playing with Henrik Lundqvist, the U.S. Open and more.
