What is your favorite NHL video game ever and why?

NHL 14, because of the high skill cap and good gameplay in general.

Who was your childhood hockey idol and why?

Patrick Roy, because I grew up watching him on the Avalanche and he got me into becoming a goaltender. Especially after the 2001 Stanley Cup.

What is your most memorable hockey moment and why?

Having the opportunity to go to school and play at Shattuck St. Mary's.

My gamertag is GrizzlyHTC because:

Everyone knows me as Grizz or Grazz and the HTC is for HowtoChel.
