The 19-year-old right wing played last season for Miami (Ohio) University, getting nine goals and eight assists with 63 penalty minutes in 37 games.

The Ohio native was captain of the U.S. National Team Development Program team in 2010-11.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
