Who has had the most influence on you (parent, coach, teammate) & Why? All of my hockey coaches have had a big influence on me – Greg Essensa (Novice) and Beau Moyer (Atom and Minor Pee) have taught me the skills of being a good hockey player and working hard every shift. Coach Louie Gialedakis is teaching me to be dedicated to my overall conditioning and treating my teammates as brothers.
Who do you pattern your game after and why? I pattern my game after Patrick Kane because he has great hands and sees the ice very well.
What jersey number do you wear & significance? #81. When I was 8 years old I made the Selects “A” team at Humber Valley after only one year of playing house league hockey and I had such a terrific year and met so many friends.  I was born in 01 so the two numbers which are both significant to me when put together are 81.
Do you have any pre-game rituals or superstitions (what do you do & why)? I stick handle with a ball outside the dressing room and focus on the game.
What is your most memorable hockey moment and why? In my Major Atom year I won the GTHL Championship and went on to win the OHF’s with the Mississauga Reps.  I received a championship ring with my name and number on it.
If you could have dinner with any three people, who would they be and why? Wayne Gretzky, Sydney Crosby, and Bobby Orr.
The one thing people don't know about me is: I write with my left hand but throw a ball with my right.
