GAMING AND HOCKEY BACKGROUND
What is your favorite NHL video game ever and why?
NHL10 and NHL 11 were the best NHLs I've played. The Eashl was new and it was so fun to play with friends and growing your online Pro!
Who was your childhood hockey idol and why?
I live in Montreal and I'm 22 years old so I haven't seen the great Montreal Canadiens teams. But if I have to select one hockey player I really like, it's Patrice Bergeron. He always puts really good offensive numbers and he is the best defensive forward too. I like to think that hockey isn't just about goals and assists, I think it's about your overall impact everywhere on the ice.
What is your most memorable hockey moment and why?
In 2014, I went to Game 4 Montreal vs Tampa Bay) series and the Habs scored the winning goal in the last 30 seconds of the game to eliminate the Lightning. It was crazy, everyone was on their feets for about 5 minutes.
My gamertag is Jer Dubz because ...
