What are some of your main goals within the game over the next 5 years?
Within the next 5 years, I have two main goals I would like to complete. The first goal I would like to accomplish would be to play Junior A. The reason this is my first goal is not only because it 1s a higher level than where I am now, but it is a stepping stone towards my second goal which is to play college hockey. My first choice would be to play in the NCAA, but I would consider all options.
Why are these your goals? Why are they important to you? What would it mean to achieve them?
The first goal is a short term goal and it is the next step up for my game and helps me play at the highest level I can. It mainly works as the stepping stone to college hockey which is my second goal. College hockey is my second goal because it is giving me the best of both worlds. It lets me continue playing the game I love at a very high level while preparing me for the future getting an education. The reason these goals are important to me is because hockey is my passion and it is what I want to do, and these goals give me the best opportunity to continue playing at a high level and eventually leave hockey with a plan and structure for the future. To complete these goals, it would mean so much to me. Although I would be happy with achieving these goals, it would create other goals to work towards for the future.
What separates you as a player and person? What are some areas requiring work? How do you continue to get better?
I think what separates me as a player and person would have to be my mental toughness. After missing a year of hockey (which has been a very large chunk of my life for over a decade) was super hard. Although there were so many ups and downs, I gained a great attribute I believe will sttck with me forever on and off the ice. I believe to be successful in life in whatever you are trying to accomplish you have to be mentally strong enough to stick with it through the good and bad days. Some areas in my game that require work would have to be my puck play and depth control. I think I lack confidence when playing the puck and need to work on calming down back there and taking the extra half second to hit the tape and limit any chances of fumbling. Why I think I should work on my depth control is mainly on plays with one player breaking in close and I get caught outside and give them the opportunity to go around me if I drop early. I continue to get better by staying consistent working on and off the ice trying to get better every day even if it’s only minimal improvement.
What do you bring to any team you play for? What could a coach expect from you if they selected you for their roster?
I believe I bring a positive and competitive attitude to teams I am a part of and no matter the circumstances, I am always ready to work and get better A coach can expect the same consistent work ethic every day and a positive mindset for all events on and off the ice. I bring the drive to get better and want to be the best goalie I possibly can.
What impact are you looking to have in your sports career? (Community, team, success, etc)
I want to go as far as I possibly can, and no matter how far I go, I want to come out with an education so that I am set up to be successful in whichever way I go in life.
What do you believe separates the best players in the world? What attributes/intangibles define them?
I believe there are two big attributes that separate the best players in the world The first one would be consistency. Being able to work and get better everyday is something not everyone is able to do. It’s tough to do, but I do believe it’s the path to success The second one would be obsession. Being obsessed with the game and having a passion to constantly be working overtime to get ahead in all aspects of the game.
Favorite thing about the game (on or off ice)?
My favonte things about the game aside from the actual sport itself would be meeting new people along the way including teammates, coaches, billets, rink staff, fans, and so many more Another thing I love about the game is the feeling of a hard fought win. Such a great feeling when everyone comes together and works as a team to win a game you maybe weren’t expected to win.
