  • Finished fourth among QMJHL rookies in scoring and third overall on Chicoutimi with 62 points (23-39--62) in 2007-08.
  • Patterns his game after New York Rangers' Chris Drury because they have similar styles and his most memorable hockey moment was getting drafted into the QMJHL.
  • He began playing at the age of seven with a friend on the Longueuil Wolves and he played eight years of minor hockey in Longueuil.
  • Credits his coach Mario Pouliot for having had the most influence on his career because “he has helped me mature”.
  • The most embarrassing song on his iPod is “I Will Survive” by Diana Ross and the one movie he would want to be in is Rocky.
