Trade to Phoenix surprises Rundblad

David Rundblad won’t be meeting an entirely new team in Phoenix. He already knows defenceman Oliver Ekman-Larsson well. The two have played together on several national teams.
That’s not to say the trade didn’t catch him by surprise. It did.
“Well, of course, kind of like a shock to me; I was surprised,” Rundblad told the Arizona Republic.
“I didn’t know anything about it, so surprising, but now after a while, I know I can’t do anything about it, so I’ll just go there and play as good as I can and hopefully I get some ice time.
“Right now, it’s a lot of feelings and emotions, it’s kind of weird. There’s a lot of things to think of right now. I already talked to Oliver Ekman-Larsson a little bit, and he told me it’s a great town, nice teammates, so I’m looking forward to it.”
