What do chicken cutlets, Jim Carrey and Tracy Chapman have in common? They're all favorites of Ducks winger Patrick Maroon.
The 6-2, 231-pound of St. Louis was geared for big things this season after breaking out last year with 11 goals and 18 assists in 62 games with the Ducks. The early part of his campaign was derailed when he missed suffered a lower-body injury on October 13 and was expected to be out for four weeks. But he cut that time in half and returned ot the Ducks lineup at the end of last month.
Maroon had points in four of his first five games this season, all assists, and he's still looking for his first goal of the year.
Here are a few of his favorite things:
Favorite NHL player growing up Todd Bertuzzi. He’s a similar player to me – big and tall.
Favorite hockey moment of your career Making it into the playoffs last year. I’d never been in an atmosphere like that before, and being in the Stanley Cup Playoffs was pretty exciting.
Why he switched to 19 That’s what I wore in the minors, when I first got traded to Syracuse. I wore 19 all the way up after that, so I figured I’d go back to it.
Favorite movies Man on Fire is a really good movie. I love that. Dumb and Dumber is a classic.
Favorite TV shows Friday Night Lights, for sure, and Sons of Anarchy.
Favorite bands I love Tracy Chapman, and I love Luke Bryan.
Someone on your iPod you’re ashamed of Justin Bieber
Celebrity crush Mila Kunis
Who would play you in a movie about your life? I think Jim Carrey
Favorite food My mom’s chicken cutlets
Favorite Orange County restaurant Roy’s in Newport Beach
