"I wasn't worried about it," Halak told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "Whatever happens, happens. I'm happy here. Last season was a bad season for me, but I was still happy that I could be here and part of the team."
Halak, who was riddled with a groin injury all season, has spent the entire off-season in St. Louis working with Blues strength and conditioning coach Nelson Ayotte.
"I went through some adversity and I wasn't happy about it," Halak said. "I was frustrated at the end of the season. I was injured and I didn't play, so obviously everything built up. I want to prove it, especially to myself, that I can still play and that I can perform."
With players set to report to training camp on Sept. 11, Halak is eagerly awaiting his teammates.
"I think I did the right thing," he said. "(The training) has been a challenge sometimes, but there's nothing for free in life. You have to work for everything. It's the middle of August now and it really flew by ... the whole two and a half months went by so fast."
It's unclear if Blues GM Doug Armstrong will look to deal Halak once camps open, or if he'll start the regular-season with three goalies on the roster.
Many believe Armstrong prefers to move one of his netminders, presumably Halak, but only time will tell.
