  • He got his start in hockey at the age of four with Timbits hockey in Halifax after his dad had him skating on the pond at an even earlier age.
  • He patterns his game after Calgary's Jarome Iginla because of his willingness to do anything to win and he’s an all-around player.
  • His most memorable hockey moments are winning gold at the Under-17 tournament and losing Game 7 to London in the 2007 playoffs – “we came so close and there was so much emotion”.
  • Credits his parents for having had the most influence on his career – “they helped me keep a level head when I was successful and believed in me through my struggles”.
  • The best piece of advice he has ever been given came from Darren Ferris – “Don’t let it make you bitter, let it make you better”.
  • His most embarrassing hockey moment was lining up for the opening faceoff while the national anthem was starting and the one thing he couldn’t live without is his cell phone.
  • If he could invite any three people to dinner he would choose: Jarome Iginla, Gordie Howe and Wayne Gretzky and if he wasn’t playing hockey he would be playing in a rock band.
