With the offseason underway, a few who call Smashville home decided to say "thank you."
Crazy couple months to finish this season. First we became parents to William Just an awesome feeling and job by @ibjornstad Then a though ending with the preds but all I can say is well be back stronger next year! And always a pleasure to represent and to be able to win was awesome! Thanks Smashville and Sweden for all the support.
I’m so grateful for the last 18 years. It’s hard to believe how fast the time goes. I got the chance to play and work with so many incredible people along the way. God taught me some incredible life lessons through the game of hockey over the years and without the gift He gave me none of this would have been possible. Thanks to the @predsnhl and @senators for all the amazing memories! Lastly thanks to my friends and family for supporting me over the years. It’s been a blast!! #romans1212
Hartnell Says He Wants To Continue Playing | NHL
"It wasn't the way I wanted to end it. I was scratched, came back and had some good games. If there's the right fit, I believe I can still be a presence, still be effective. If I didn't believe that, I would step away."
Best of luck, Scotty. I hope you get your chance.
