I just wanted to start off with my hockey path isn't like anyone else path for hockey. I started playing hockey when I was about 13 years old and I always wanted to play hockey and go far in the sport, but I knew it wasn't going to be an easy road to get there, there was going to be ups and downs but I just need to have the right response to any circumstance that happened to me. My mom has been a big part of who I am, she has taught me so many life lessons and what to do in the tough times, she always has an answer. I've always been interested in hockey at a young age, it caught my eye when I watched the Montreal Canadians play the Florida Panthers and I was just hooked to the sport, and it wasn't till second-year peewee I actually started playing community hockey. My academic goals are to first graduate high school, but my GPA isn't where I would like it to be right now and I would like to take 1-2 years to upgrade my GPA so it opens more options for university hockey. I am a quiet guy when I first meet people, but when I start getting to know people and people around me I open up and you would never know that I was a quiet guy before.
