I have a strong passion for the game of ice hockey and my dream has always been to compete at the Division 1 college level. This season I agreed to continue my game at the prep school, The Eaglebrook School, in Massachusetts. I am on the varsity team this year at the school. I work as hard as I can because being one of the new players on the team, and the youngest on the team, has shown me that I need to make my mark. I contribute to the team as a Center, on the first powerplay, and first penalty kill. Every game and practice I always want to lead by example, whether its going first in drills, having a captains practice, or leading warmups. During the Spring and Summer, when hockey is not in season, I do many camps and combines because I miss being on the ice, and I enjoy getting coached by different coaches. I noticed that being coached from a variety of different coaches shows what other teams might have in mind during games and what the best strategies are. This brings my hockey IQ to a very high level which is a big part of my game. Another large part of what makes me the hockey player I am is how I love to block shots. Every game I always have a goal to block at least two shots. This is because I have learned that one of the easiest ways to counter attack on a team and get a quick goal is to block a shot and go down on a breakaway. Also, it gets the team fired up and brings us momentum. My style of play is definitely a goal scorer, but I also put up many assists due my vision on the ice. The prep school varsity level that I play at now, has taught me that grinding in the corners is what creates the most opportunities in the game. One of the ways I contribute to my line is by forechecking as hard as I can and creating opportunities. I am striving to compete at the Division 1 college hockey level, and continue my hockey career from there.
