My goal is to play at the highest level of hockey possible, for as long as possible, while still succeeding academically. I started playing hockey at the age of 6 and it was the sport that I fell in love with since. Hockey has taught me physical and mental toughness along with mental skills to help me concentrate in school and perform on the ice.
Within a year I had three major injuries, two of which required surgery, that really took me and my game a step-down, but I was able to bounce back in a short period of time. As a result of these hardships, I learned how to endure and train myself back to my standards and how to deal with adversity along the way.
