• He patterns his game after Tampa Bay’s Martin St. Louis -- “he is smaller than others, but strong with the puck. He has great hockey sense and scoring ability”.

• His parents and older brothers, Marek and Tibor, who play professionally in Europe, have been the greatest influences on his career. They have helped him not only financially, but with skilled advice.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
