  • He played minor hockey for the Cumberland Barons for 10 years after getting his start in hockey on the outdoor, backyard rink his dad built.
  • His nickname is "Lalsy" and he wears jersey number nine because he was drafted ninth overall in the OHL.
  • 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.
  • Credits his dad for having the most influence on his career he is always giving me advice on what I can improve on and he always tries to lead me in the right direction.
  • 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.
  • If he had the chance to have dinner with any three people he would choose: Nicklas Lidstrom and former NHLer Pavel Bure, they are both my idols and have had amazing careers, and Jerry Bruckheimer, he is a very smart and interesting man.
  • The one thing he couldn't live without is his hockey stick and the most embarrassing song on his iPod is Candyman by Aqua.
