  • Patterns his game after Eric Staal – “he is a pure power-forward who can put the puck in the net”.
  • Credits his parents for having had a lot of influence on his career for always having great advice and standing behind him in everything.
  • His most memorable hockey moment was representing Canada and winning gold at the 2008 Under-18 IIHF World Championships.
  • The one movie he would like to be in is Bourne Ultimatum and the one thing he couldn’t live without is hockey.
