The time you spend watching the NHL will now be spent on what during the lockout?

“I’ll be watching the NFL I guess, unfortunately.”

If you could star in any type of movie, what would it be?

“A comedy, probably, just because those are my favorite.”

What is your favorite comedy of all time?

“Old School because Will Ferrell is one of my favorite actors. That movie is just hysterical.”

In head coach Walt Kyle’s words: “He’s a big goaltender and a real, real good size. At times, he’ll remind people of (Brian) Stewart). Right now he’s a guy that has a lot of athletic ability and a lot of skill. He needs to grow and get polished in his game. We think with Joe Shawhan here and with a good work ethic, he really has a chance to grow and develop into a quality goaltender.”
