Tell us about your hometown, family and hobbies.
I’m the oldest of three boys raised in a hockey family living in the city of Saskatoon Saskatchewan; I started my hockey career at a very young age, in the offseason I also enjoy playing sports like baseball and football too.
How did you originally begin playing hockey (what age as well) and what is your favourite memory from when you were younger?
I began skating at the age of 4 on our backyard rink that we still have to this day. Some of my favourite memories go from skating on the backyard rink with my brothers to getting my first player of the game in a novice tournament.
Who is your favourite NHL player and who do you model your game after? Why?
My favourite NHL player is Mathew Barzal as I have been watching him since he first played in the world juniors, and I admire his play as he is a very creative, fast, and intelligent player. I try to model my game after him.
What team do/did you play for? What was your favorite part from the season?
I played for the swift current legionaries U18 AAA and my favourite part of the season was being able to build up my experience in the league and improve my versatile play.
What are your top goals as a student athlete? Why are they your top goals?
I would love to play hockey in the NCAA league and for me to do that I need to be a very efficient student athlete and keep my marks up. They are my top goals because school is very important as well, I get to play hockey at a very high level.
How important is school from your perspective? Why is it that way?
School has always been a noticeably big priority in my life as you need to succeed in it to play at higher levels in hockey and to have a successful career outside of hockey.
What would it mean to you to play at the NCAA or Pro level?
It would mean everything for me to play at the NCAA level as I have always dreamt about playing there. It would also bring many big opportunities outside of hockey.
What separates you as a player or person? How do you continue to get better?
I do not see much of a difference between myself as a player or person as I am hardworking both on and off the ice. The way I continue to get better is to set mini-goals for myself to meet.
What impact are you looking to have in your sports careers (community, team, success, etc.)
I am looking to be remembered as a respectful, coachable, and good teammate who puts his body on the line to get the win.
One fun fact about yourself.
I’m the oldest of 32 cousins.
