  • Got started in hockey after taking skating lessons at the age of four – “I hated them with a passion, I sprawled out on the ice crying to get off. I was then put into organized hockey and as soon as I scored my first goal, I never wanted to leave the ice”.
  • His first hockey team was the West Mall Lightning and he played minor hockey for the Toronto Marlboros for eight years.

  • If he could invite any three people to dinner he would choose: Doug Gilmour – “my all-time favorite player”, Pat Quinn – “to talk about Under-18 and learn more about the game”, and Cabbie (from The Score) – “he would be a great conversation starter and seems to be familiar with talking to NHL superstars”.
  • His most embarrassing hockey moment was scoring on his own net during the final game of the World Junior ‘A’ Challenge in Trail, B.C.
