Jesperi Kotkaniemi arrived in the NHL with the Habs at 18, and quickly brought with him an energy and innocence that the team needed.

However, his smile didn't last long. From his 2nd year, KK had to live with the Montreal media pressure, and he wasn't able to handle it well.

In an interview with Elliotte Friedman and Jeff Marek, confessing to a piece of advice his compatriot had given him.

"Jesperi Kotkaniemi admits that he was reading a bit too much into what the media was saying and that it was affecting him. He adds that Joel Armia helped him with that since he hates all media lol, he told him to ignore it." - Via NHL Watcher



Not much of a winner to say that your former teammate, who still plays with the CH, hates all media, especially in a market like Montreal.



However, we have to agree with Armia on one thing: you have to unhook from what all the media are saying about him when you're playing for the Montreal Canadiens. You don't have to hate them, though.
