INTERVIEW


Physically, my speed is major in my gameplay. It helps me defensively; making it difficult for opponents to beat me, offensively attacking up the line, and especially as 1st runner in a PCD. One thing that I am always confident about in my games is that I never fear my opponents will be faster than me. Mentally, the thing I value most in hockey is relationships.


I would love the opportunity to get a Sports Scholarship to experience living, studying and playing hockey the USA. Training and playing full-time would allow me to continue to develop new skills and to improve my hockey into the future.


I am hoping to become the best hockey player I can be. I want to learn from both coaches and teammates, have new experiences and grow as an individual mentally and physically. Overall, I want to enjoy every moment of it as it is a once in a lifetime opportunity. A big focus is that I WANT TO WIN!
