What is your favorite NHL video game ever and why? 

NHL 14 because there was lots of room for creativity.

Who was your childhood hockey idol and why? 

I grew up a soccer player but I followed some hockey. My favourite hockey player growing up would be Ovi. The guy scored some unreal goals.

What is your most memorable hockey moment and why? 

When the Jets fan base continued to cheer on the team at the end of game 4 in the 2015 playoffs against the ducks. Shows how loyal the Jets fans are.
