Defenceman Nolan Baumgartner is already enjoying the best year of his NHL career with a goal and five assists in 12 games after seeing limited action during the last decade.

24 hours: Being in Vancouver means you're closer to your Kamloops restaurant, Players Chophouse.

#4, Nolan Baumgartner: "Myself, (NHLers) Jason Strudwick, Steve Passmore, Scott Ferguson and Darryl Sydor, we're all in on this restaurant. We spent a couple of years of our lives there (with WHL's Kamloops Blazers) and it was a huge growing process for us. We just wanted to give back to the community."

24: What's your favourite Halloween costume?

#4: "Robin, from Batman and Robin. I played him (Sunday) night. We had a get together and a little costume party. (Teammate) Wade Brookbank was Batman."

24: If you could have lunch with anyone in history, who would it be?

#4: "I'd love to sit down with Tiger Woods. He's in an individual sport. Just to see how he prepares for tournaments and what his mindset is when he gets out on the course."

24: Your favourite movie is Braveheart. Are you a Scottish history buff?

#4: "I couldn't imagine being in those times and how the people would fight wars. It amazes me that it was hand-to-hand combat. They were definitely warriors back then."
