  • Named Cape Breton’s Most Improved Player for 2007-08.
  • Got his start at the age of four in his backyard until he was old enough to play in a league.
  • Credits his brother, Benoit, for having had the most influence on his career – “without him I wouldn’t be here today, he always let me play with him and his friends in every sport”.
  • Patterns his game after Montreal’s Mike Komisarek because he plays a solid defensive game.
  • He wears number two because it is the first number of his birthday (21st) and his most memorable hockey moment was being drafted by Cape Breton because it was a step closer to achieving his dream.
  • If he could invite any three people to dinner he would choose: Sidney Crosby, Wayne Gretzky and Maurice Richard – “to learn what kind of vision they had of hockey in their own generation”.
  • If he wasn’t playing hockey he would become an agent and the one thing he couldn’t live without is a television.
