Something about you our fans should know about you: My whole focus this offseason is to get ready to play in front of you at the Meridian Centre.
How would you characterize your style of play? I play a 200-foot game with a defence first mentality. I also play more of a set-up role in the offensive zone and can also score as well.
Who, in the NHL, do you believe your style of play most similarly resembles? Jonathan Toews
Who is the toughest goalie you’ve competed against? Zach Roy
What are you most looking forward to this upcoming season? Hopefully fulfilling my long-time dream of playing in the OHL, with a franchise that I have looked up to for many years.
Any big plans for the summer, once school’s finished? Catching up with some friends I don’t get to see during the hockey season, spending time with my family and continuing to get better on and off the ice.
