What is your biggest superstition?

“I don’t tell anyone my superstitions.”

Do you actually have superstitions?

“Yes, but I don’t tell anyone.”

What is the best pregame meal ever?

“Some sort of pasta and probably chicken breast.”

In head coach Walt Kyle’s words:

“Sat last year as a non qualifier. He paid his dues, did a great job in school. He comes in this year and with a little bit of experience in what its like to go to college, not necessarily play sports. He has very good speed, a real quick release on his shot, good vision on the ice. He’s going to have to adapt to being back playing on a team, being involved. He’s going to have to adjust to the speed of the game because he came from a real low level junior league. When he does, he’ll have a real opportunity to provide offense.”
