  • Having a pre-game tea and yogurt from Tim Horton's is part of his pre-game ritual which starts first thing in the morning.
  • Patterns his game after Detroit's Nicklas Lidstrom he has great offensive skills, yet is still a very strong defenseman and he is a complete player.

  • His most memorable hockey moment was being named to Team Canada for the Under-18 Ivan Hlinka Memorial tournament, it was a memorable moment, as every kid dreams of representing his country along with a lot of other great hockey players.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
