What is your most memorable athletic achievement?
My most memorable athletic achievement was playing on the Huron Perth Lakers for the past 7 years since Minor Atom. I have had great coaches, teammates, friends, and parents that have helped me along the way to become a better player and person.
Outside of hockey, what are you most passionate about?
Outside of hockey, I am passionate about working out at the gym. My passion for working out extends past wanting to make myself a better person physically. It helps me mentally to relieve stress and clear my mind of distractions. My relationships with family and friends are also important as they have always supported me, and I wouldn't have gotten where I am today without them. My grandma has also been by my side since the beginning and is my biggest supporter!
How would you describe yourself as a player?
I would describe myself as a crafty playmaker that can use my hockey IQ to create offensive opportunities for my team. I see the ice well, allowing me to find open passing lanes, even when under pressure. I consider myself a leader that people look up to and strive to be a good teammate both on and off the ice. When on the ice, my goal is to showcase a good work ethic and get better each time. I have high expectations of myself to perform every shift and be the best possible player that I can be.
What are your academic aspirations and accomplishments?
I am currently an honour roll student with aspirations of becoming a full-time firefighter in the future. I strive to have good marks and hold myself to a high standard academically.
What is something about you that most people would not know?
For the last number of years, I played both baseball and hockey competitively. I had to always balance both sports at the same time until this year where I decided to focus on hockey primarily.
