A Closer Look: Matt Beleskey

by Staff Writer / Anaheim Ducks
Straight from the pages of Ducks Digest during the 2011-12 season, here is a A Closer Look with 24-year-old left wing Matt Beleskey.

Favorite Food
I’d have to go with my mom’s chicken parm. Whenever I go over for dinner, there is always something special there. But that would be my favorite.

Favorite Movie
Of all-time, I’d say “Dumb and Dumber.” That is one that I can watch and laugh at every time.

Favorite TV shows
Right now, it’s “Sons of Anarchy.”

Favorite Vacation Spot
We just went to Napa, which was awesome. I’ve been to a couple places, like the Caribbean. But I think I like Napa.

Other Sports You Would Play if Not Hockey

I like playing golf. I played a lot of lacrosse when I was younger. I’d say golf and baseball are my next best sports. My handicap in golf is like 16, but after shoulder surgery it’s probably a lot worse now.

First Car
My first car was a black 2000 Dodge Dakota.

Favorite Part of Orange County

Where I live in Newport Beach. You can’t beat walking out and getting on the beach. It’s a great spot to live.

Favorite Road City
Toronto because I’m from around there. That is a given. New York City is always amazing.

On being on Twitter (@matt_beleskey)

I like being able to interact with the fans. It’s great to see how much they care and pay attention, especially out here. They are very loyal fans. It’s always fun to get on there, throw some comments at them and see what they are thinking.

On his bulldog Karl

He is almost a year now and is getting big. He’s a rising celebrity these days. You can book him for shooting if anybody wants.
