"As for the arena, the rink is very nice. My brother said it was good but after getting here and seeing it myself I know it's all really nice."

O'Reilly said he is ready to take to the KHL ice for the first time on Wednesday, when Metallurg travels to the Moscow region town of Mytishchi to face Atlant.
