Jared McCann AMA Recap

by FloridaPanthers.com Staff / Florida Panthers

Forward Jared McCann took some time out of his busy development camp schedule to get to know the /r/hockey subreddit earlier this afternoon. Check out some of the highlights from his AMA below!




Q: First impression of South Florida and favorite thing about living here?

A: It’s warm. And really humid. Favorite thing? The food. Cuban sandwiches are unbelievable.

Q: Can you try and get the other guys together to take a team picture like this?

A: I’ll do what I can! No promises. Those shades are awesome, though.

Q: Favorite Pokemon?

A: Charizard. Obviously.

Q: Is anyone on the Panthers playing Pokemon Go?

A: I have it! A lot of the prospects are. They got me hooked on it.

Q: Hey Jared! I'm curious, when was that moment when it really hit you that you made it in the NHL?

A: My first game in Calgary. It was an exciting time, I had my family there. The feeling of being out on the ice against guys like Giordano, they were pretty incredible to play against.

Q: What is the average air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

A: My calculations say about 24 miles per hour? Big fan of birds. I have an owl tattoo on my arm. Whoever said tattoos don't hurt is lying, by the way.
