GAMING AND HOCKEY BACKGROUND

What is your favorite NHL video game ever and why? 

NHL 14 was the most fun for me and thats when i started playing NHL more seriously. Probably because the skill gap was bigger and EASHL, Gmc were super fun.

Who was your childhood hockey idol and why? 

Idk. probably Miikka Kiprusoff because i played goalie in real life. Nowadays my favorite is Rask.

What is your most memorable hockey moment and why? 

Finland winning the 2011 WC. Sochi 2014 Finlands win over russia. Bostons 5-4ot win against the maple leafs, I´m a leafs fan and that was tough to watch but i was also happy for Rask.

My gamertag is SkillzPayBillz3 because ...
