At last yearâ€™s development camp, Andre Burakovsky was the resident adorable European, talking about eating â€ścinnamon rollersâ€ť and Tom Wilson making him peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. This yearâ€™s first-round pick, Jakub Vrana, has high expectationsÂ to live up to. Heâ€™s doing well so far.
â€śOkay, letâ€™s get this out of the way: Is it Jakub or Jacob?â€ť CSNâ€™s Chuck Gormley asked as Varna stepped to the podium, trying to rectify the duel names Vrana is known by. â€śWhat do you prefer?â€ť
â€śYou can choose,â€ť Vrana responded sheepishly. â€śYour choice. â€¦ Call me whatever you want.â€ť
