• He patterns his game after Maxim Afinogenov, Alex Kovalev and Pavel Bure – “I take small things from a lot of offensive players and trying to use it to my advantage”.

• The most memorable international hockey moment he has watched was when Marian Gaborik scored two goals in Slovakia’s 5-3 win over Russia at the 2006 Olympics.
