Personal Statement

I am a 16 year-old, 6 foot 4, full right catch goalie playing in the Eastern Hockey League Premier playing for Glenn Merkosky of the Adirondack Junior Thunder.  I was named the top Rookie Goalie Prospect this year by the EHLP. .Last year as an under-ager I was nominated for the Top Goalie of the year in the CSSHL award where I played for Pilot Mound Hockey Academy U17 Prep. 

I work as hard off the ice as I do on it being named to the honour roll at Queensbury High School.    

I love playing hockey and my goal is to play professionally. My coaches describe me as an athletic, focused Southpaw goalie who loves to win and contribute positively to my team.  I have been extremely lucky to train with some of the best coaches Glenn Merkosky, Charlie McTavish (Arizona Coyotes NHL); Andrew Mercer ( Ottawa 67s OHL and Clarkson University), Marco Raimondo ( Halifax Moosehead QMJHL and McGill University) and former Winnipeg Jet Goalie and current Pilot Mound Goalie Coach Gordie Tumilson. My family adviser is former Edmonton Oiler Detroit Red Wing Eddie Mio of Octane Sports Management and Wayne Smith former Scout Boston Bruins.

At 14 I was drafted into the Navan Grads Junior A Hockey Club.  I was selected as one of the best goalies in the Ottawa to represent Ottawa District at the 2021 Draftday All-Star OHL Prospects Showcase.  We beat some of the best players across Canada and the US and I was selected to play in the championship finals. 

I am extremely proud of my time as goalie for the Ottawa Myers Snipers spring team and our accomplishments like winning the Montreal Meltdown, North American Prospects Showcase (Buffalo 2019); Montreal CCM Elite Invitational U16 (2020); and the Quebec Bulldogs AAA Tournament U14 (2019).

At these tournaments and during the regular season I have also been awarded the most valuable player or won skills competitions for best goalie.  In 2019 I was awarded the Adam Harlow Trophy Top Goaltender Awarded at the 20th Annual Bell Capital Cup AAA Tournament (2019); best goalie at the Bell Capital Cup World Invitational Tournament (2017); MVP Big Nickel Tournament Best Goalie (2018); First star of the Bell Capital Cup World Invitational championship game (2016). 

Thanks for reading my profile and I look forward to talking to you about your program.
