What is your most embarrassing moment? One time I was on a plane and the guy next to me had to get up to use the restroom. I got up to let him go and my seatbelt caught to my sweat pants and pulled them down! It was at the beginning of the flight, so I spent five hours flying with a bunch op people who saw my underwear!
If you could have any power in the world, what would it be and why? To be invisible because I could mess with people without them knowing it was me … and so I could fly anywhere in the world without playing for a plane ticket. 
What is your most prized possession? My top goalie trophy from an all boys skills competition
What is you favorite thing about hockey? Besides actually playing, I’d have to say watching a goalie make a huge save because I know the feeling.
If you could have any job that you wanted, what would it be and why? I would be a sports psychologist because they help athletes achieve success using their “mental game”
Just by looking at you, what is something that no one would ever guess? That I am an ice hockey goalie … no one ever believes me when I tell them that I am!
What is the one product that you cannot live without? Mascara
What is your favorite place to go in Los Angeles? STAPLES Center, of course!
What is the best pick-up line you have ever received? “Do you believe in love at first sight or do I need to walk by one more time?”
If you could spend the day with anyone you wanted, dead or alive, who would it be and why? Patrick Roy. I would love to have a conversation with him about his hockey career and what it took for him to be such a great goaltender.
Name a phrase you feel you live your life by? “Live everyday like it’s your last!”
What are some of your favorite Kings moments? I would have to say the Kings 9 game winning streak last season. I attended some of those games and I was literally on the edge of my seat the entire time! Also, I was at game 3 of the playoffs last season and when the Kings hit the ice to “Back in Black” with the crowd going nuts, I got chills! The atmosphere at STAPLES Center was intense and I’ll never forget it.
