What is your most memorable athletic achievement?
My most memorable athletic achievement was winning an Alliance Championship in the 2014-15 season. It was an amazing experience, and we had a very close group of players.
Outside of hockey, what are you most passionate about?
Outside of hockey, I enjoy farming with my grandparents in Wiarton, Ontario. It is enriching working in a hands-on environment and taking care of the animals every day. In the summer, I also enjoy running track as it allows me to continue pushing myself to be faster and more athletic.
How would you describe yourself as a player?
I would describe myself as a hardworking and unselfish player. I am always looking to set up my teammates and make heads-up plays. My strong stickhandling ability also allows me to be confident in the corners while maintaining possession of the puck.
What are your academic aspirations and accomplishments?
My academic goal is to maintain an 80% average or higher in all my classes. In the future, I would like to focus on a career in architecture while continuing to pursue hockey at the highest level.
What is something about you that most people would not know?
I like my skates really tight! To accomplish this, I put extra wax on my laces to prevent the laces from loosening when I am on the ice. I also have a 66' x 42' rink in my backyard, and I spend a lot of time there with my friends, working on my skills and playing games.
