If you could star in any movie, what type of movie would it be and why?

“A comedy because I’m a pretty easy going guy and I don’t take things seriously.”

What is your favorite movie and why?

“‘Step Brothers’ because it’s a good movie and Will Ferrell is an all-time great.”

In head coach Walt Kyle’s words:

“Young goaltender we’ve seen for a couple years. He was a partner in goal with Michael Doan in juniors for a year. We’re real aware of him and his skills. We brought him in late in the year to fill a need. He’s very athletic, technically sound. He’s a guy who looks like a Division I goaltender. He’s going to have an opportunity to play. He’s certainly, in our opinion, going to grow into a quality goaltender over time.”
