Since his arrival in the summer of 2011, Andrew Ladd has never been one to shy away from expectations or responsibility.

Ladd probably spends more time in front of a microphone or camera than anyone else on the Winnipeg Jets' roster.

As the captain of a team in the Canadian market, he knows that comes with the territory and while it can occasionally be a monotonous task, Ladd almost always makes himself available.

So on a day when most folks had their attention on Canada's men's semifinal match-up with the United States, I wanted to get Ladd's perspective on how he felt this season has gone so far for him personally.

After all, Ladd's past seven months included an invitation to Canada's Olympic orientation camp, a coaching change and a number of ups-and-downs in between.
