Who has been the biggest influence on your hockey career?
“My dad. He played growing up. He got me into the sport. He and my mom and grandparents have all supported me for my whole career.”
The time you spent watching the NHL will now be spent on what during the lockout?
“I don’t know. You have to find something else to do. I’ll find something else on TV or find a good movie to watch.”
In head coach Walt Kyle’s words:
“Young defenseman with good puck moving ability. He sees the ice well. He’s going to have to adjust to learn how to defend, but as time goes, we like where he fits into the program as well.”
