Michael Bunting is returning to Toronto as a visitor for the first time since signing with the Carolina Hurricanes. During his media availability earlier today, he spoke about what he expects the game to be like.

Bunting Excited To Be Back In Toronto Around Family And Friends

One of the first things Michael Bunting mentioned was how excited he was to be back in a place he considers home. Bunting confirmed he will have several family members in attendance for the game to support him.

"I'm excited to play the old team, play some friends, and obviously that's hometown for me, so it's gonna be pretty cool to play them," admitted the former Maple Leaf.

While Toronto might be home they are now the opposition on the ice and this is something that Bunting is very well aware of. He does plan to use what he knows about his former team to his advantage tonight.

Bunting Planning To Get Under Former Team's Skin

After talking about how much he loved being back home in Toronto Bunting's tone shifted. This is because he was asked how playing his former team could be used to his advantage. Bunting would not share his secrets but did say he might know who is the easiest to agitate.

Said he wasn't going to share if he knew the best way to get under his former teammates' skin.

The easiest to agitate? «We'll find out.»

All eyes will be on Bunting once the puck drops. A close watch will have to be kept on him to see if he does indeed try to go after any of his former teammates. The game is incredibly important for both the Hurricanes and Maple Leafs so tensions could be high throughout the game.
