My academic focus is on business related studies. I‘m an athlete before a hockey goalie and have been training with a personal trainer since age twelve. This training has given me very explosive movement for a bantam goalie. It has also helped me to be an elite puck handling and skating goalie. It’s difficult to effectively dump and chase against me. I’ve also logged 4 assists in my time in Bantam A. I’m extremely strong and have good balance. Bumping into me is a mistake not many will make more than once. All of my coaches from mites on up will attest to my attitude and coachability, and I always try to be a positive influence and leader. There have been several elite athletes in my family and my dad had the opportunity to play NCAA hockey. I believe that I have two critical attributes that can’t be coached which make me a good prospect. My reaction speed is very good for my age. I’m also a leader in every locker room I’m in. Leadership comes naturally for me as I get along with everyone and I work hard in the off-season and between games. I expect my teammates to do the same. I also handle, pass, and shoot the puck with great strength and accuracy and have about three assists per season on average. Finally, I can be physical at times and will occasionally body check the fore checker as he touches the puck on a dump in. My dad started teaching me the position at age seven, but I didn‘t practice or play goalie full time until I was 11. He “followed the book” and that allowed me to develop a more complete knowledge of the game and developed my skating. I played out at wing for the first time in three years for one AAA tournament in 2020 and had 2 G 1 A. I try to use the most efficient aspects of both modern butterfly and old North American standup technique. I also use both blocking and reactive postures and try to do so at the optimum time. My family moved to MN to give me better training and a better path to playing NCAA hockey than my dad had to take. I’ve gotten .920 or better on the season all but twice in every league I’ve played in. I have 34 shutouts in my amateur hockey career. I’m working towards committing to Tier 1 or 2 Juniors for up to three seasons after HS and then a D1 college.
