What is your biggest superstition?

“Probably a walk on game days.”

Who has been the biggest influence on your hockey career?

“I have to name my parents and grandparents. I can’t single one out. They all did a lot, just their dedication to come out and watch my games, even when I wasn’t playing in my hometown.”

In head coach Walt Kyle’s words:“He’s a power forward who played on a really good team in Surrey in the BC junior league. He’s a real strong player. We look for him to be a solid, physical type guy to provide strength and physical play low along with checking ability. He has good hands and the ability to play. He has a heavy shot. He’s going to have to adjust to the speed.”
