I am an aggressive and powerful hybrid goalie. I am very quick, agile and athletic while my lateral movement is explosive. I have been described by my goalie coaches as being extremely strong. I do not hesitate to send a message to opposing players that "I control the crease". I am a leader both on and off the ice and am extremely vocal while in net. I pride myself on my dedication, hard work and integrity. Furthermore, I am extremely coachable and willing to try different styles and techniques which my coaches can attest to.
My goal is to play hockey at the highest level that I can achieve and ultimately, I would like to pursue a career as an Athletic Trainer, Strength & Conditioning Coach or Hockey Coach with a collegiate or professional athletic program.
I have been skating since I was 18 months old, playing hockey since the age of four and goalie since I was five years old. I have always played hockey in some capacity year round whether it is league play, spring/summer tournaments, and private goalie training which I began at approximately 7 years old. I played my freshman season on the Chanhassen (MN) High School’s Varsity hockey team where I was one of two goalies and the only freshman on the team. For my sophomore year I played Varsity for Waconia (MN) High School. My season at Waconia served well for me as a goalie as I was constantly faced with difficult situations such as breakaways and odd-man rushes to name a few thus getting great opportunities to develop as a goalie. During this season I was drafted by the Northern Cyclones in the 2019 USPHL NCDC Futures Draft. I currently play for the Cyclones Academy U16 AAA team in the USPHL 16U League.
In the summer of 2019 I played in the USPHL ‘03 Summer Showcase where I was 2-0 (1.5 GAA). I also played for Team Canada West-White 03’s in the Jr. Chowder Cup (5 games played, 1 GAA). In Spring 2018 I was selected to participate in the Minnesota CCM High Performance program District 6 Boys 15 as well as the WHL U.S. Prospects Pre-Draft Combine. In the off-season I train at Minnesota Advancement Program - MEGA Goaltending where I train with both the High School and the Juniors/College groups.
In addition to hockey I enjoy strength training. I am currently 5'10”, 160 lbs with a 70” wingspan. I also enjoy volunteering my time, having done so with feeding the homeless and coaching Mite, Squirt and Pee Wee age goalies.
