Tell us about your hometown, family and hobbies.
I am from Warman Saskatchewan. It used to be a pretty small town but it is been growing quite fast. I’ve lived in a couple of different houses here but recently I have been a five-minute walk from the rink which has made it easy to go to and from practice as well as go play shinny with friends. I live with my two parents Marc and Rachelle as well as my two brothers and dog Brayden Logan and Jax. The main staple of our family is that we love to go to the lake any chance we get. We have a cabin at Wakaw Lake and are there all summer. In my free time, I like to hang out with friends and family as well as work out.
How did you originally begin playing hockey (what age as well) and what is your favourite memory from when you were younger?
I started playing hockey at age. I originally started playing because my dad played hockey all his life and my older brother was already in hockey which made it easy for me to start. My dad was a coach throughout all of my minor hockey which really motivated me. My favourite memory from when I was younger is definitely when I scored a triple overtime game winner in the gold medal game in spring hockey.
Who is your favourite NHL player and who do you model your game after? Why?
My favourite NHL player is Connor McDavid because of how he is changing the game and how dynamic he is. But on the other hand, the player who I model my game is Patrice Bergeron, I have a very similar style of play with my two way game as well as my faceoffs.
What team do/did you play for? What was your favorite part from the season?
I am set to play with the Humboldt Broncos for the coming up season but most recently I played with the Warman Wildcats of the Saskatchewan Midget AAA hockey league. After living away from home for two years playing with Tisdale it was definitely nice to be able to play in my hometown.
What are your top goals as a student athlete? Why are they your top goals?
My ultimate goal as a student athlete is to go play D1 hockey in the states, this has been my lifelong dream because of how important school is to me, and to be able to do both hockey and school at the same time would be awesome.
How important is school from your perspective? Why is it that way?
My parents have raised me to take pride in my schooling and it has stuck throughout my life. I want to set myself up for success in life and school is the first way to do that.
What would it mean to you to play at the NCAA or Pro level?
I think what separates me as a player and person is my work ethic. Everything I do I do to the best of my ability even when nobody’s watching.
What separates you as a player or person? How do you continue to get better?
Communication and leadership. I have been given the honour of being captains on different teams and have been able to help bring the team closer together. I am able to talk to everyone and have a sense of what they may need in order to bring them up during an off game. I continue to get better by not cheating myself and always doing extra reps in the gym or on the ice.
What impact are you looking to have in your sports careers (community, team, success, etc.)
In my sports career, I’m hoping to be able to be someone that kids can look up to and try to model themselves off of. I had a taste of that this past year in Warman, there were hundreds of kids at every game and they knew all of us by name and would even recognize us on the streets.
One fun fact about yourself.
One fun fact about me is that I’m very good at both downhill skiing and water skiing!
