Cole Sillinger threw out the first pitch at Monday night's Cleveland Guardians game and stopped by the Bally Sports Cleveland desk to talk hockey.

Sillinger spoke about how acquiring Johnny Gaudreau and Erik Gudbranson along with extending Patrik Laine impacted the team.

"I think it changes the whole dynamic of our team," he said. "Adding a guy like Johnny, obviously [an] NHL superstar, and then extending Patty [Laine], even a guy like [Erik] Gudbranson, a little more grit on the back end. [He's] a big guy, plays right-handed shot [defense], a guy we're going to utilize a lot this year."

He also spoke about how the off-season moves add expectations for the upcoming season. 

"Now that we're going to have expectations, it's going to be interesting to see how we all come together," he said. "I think we'll be just fine. I mean, that's one thing our locker room is: a bunch of great dudes, a bunch of great people. We're all super close and that certainly helps. So it'll be an exciting year for all of us."
