When did you learn to skate?
I learned to skate when I was 3 years old
Do you prefer to skate outdoors or in the area?
Now in the arena, but when I was a kid, definitely out in the elements.
What’s your favorite hockey movie?
Do you have any pre-game rituals?
Pre-game nap, get to the rink, get your stick taped, do the same warm-up and then sit on the bench for a few minutes.
Is there a reason behind your jersey number?
No, it was randomly given to me. It was funny because I was number 20 in high school, 19 in juniors and 20 in college. So it added up to 59, but it was just given to me.
What advice do you have for young skaters?
No matter what people say, never give up and prove people wrong. That’s what you’ve got to try and live by.
