How long have you been playing hockey for? And what keeps you motivated in this sport? 

I have been playing hockey for 11 years now and there is not one  day I would take back. My love for the game and always trying to get better is what keeps me going! 

Who has been your biggest influence in your hockey career?

I have had so my great influences in my career some of the great names are my Dad he has helped me like crazy, Jeff Ovens, Mickey Kluner, Robin Bauer, and my family! Those are just some of the great names that have helped me a lot! 

What is your most memorable moment as a hockey player? And what are your greatest accomplishments?

Winning gold last year at provincials and winning silver last year at westerns was defiantly my best hockey moment with a great group of guys. My greatest accomplishments are yet to come! I'm just going to keep working and strive for the best! 

How has training at the Athlete Factory affected your performance in hockey? What's the biggest difference you notice as a player? 

Athlete Factory has helped me so much! My speed and power have increase significantly! The biggest difference I've noticed is my first three steps are way faster and my core stability is way better to allow me to win more battles and knock guys over! 

What is your ultimate goal in hockey? 

My hockey goal is to play in the NHL and the Athlete Factory is doing a great job getting there! 

What advice can you give young hockey players who aspire to get to your level? 

Remember to always  keep working because someone is else is always trying to get better than you! Also keep a great attitude and have fun!
