Sidelined a full-season last year due to knee surgery, Chad Kolarik feels as though he is only now---15 games into the 2012-13 campaign---getting close to returning to the player he was two seasons ago. Calling himself "95%" healthy, Kolarik has recorded six points in his last two games (4-2-6), and scored three goals in Saturday's 5-2 win over Norfolk for his first Hat Trick since 2008.

Following his big performance on Saturday Kolarik discussed a variety of topics with Jim Cerny from BlueshirtsUnited.com in the afterglow of his Hat Trick.
