Prior to attending Ferris State, the six-foot-two, 191-pound, winger spent three seasons with the Traverse City North Stars of the North American Hockey League, where he scored 40 goals and added 40 assists in 121 games.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
