First off, where have you played all of your minor hockey and what have been some of your favorite personal and team memories in hockey for you so far?

I’ve played for Fort Gary North Hockey association since I was 5, started out as a player and became a goaltender when I was 8 years old. I played my minor Peewee and  currently Peewee for the Winnipeg Twins AA.  My favorite memory so far was when I first became a goaltender full time.

How has your 2017/2018 went so far?  What are you hoping to accomplish for the remainder of the season?

Currently our team is in second place in the WMHA AA Peewee division, I’ve had two shutouts,6 wins 2 losses with a GAA 2.57 and a save percentage of .900.  My goals for the remainder of the season is to help our team win the city AA championship, increase my save percentage up to .950 and to improve overall.

Who has made the biggest impact on your hockey career so far whether it be coaches, family members etc.?

I’ve had the benefit of working with a number of goalie coaches as part of the GDI program here in Winnipeg and feel ive improved the most with their help.

Talk a bit about what you enjoy doing away from the rink to taker a breather during a business hockey season?  Is it hard to combine hockey and school?

I like to snowboard in the winter, wakeboard in the summer when I’m not in hockey camps and go to the Out Door Rink whenever I can  (as a player).  My schoolwork is very intense with a lot of homework, however it is a priority and manage to juggle both my hockey and school ensuring I excel at both.

What are some of the other strengths in your game that help set you apart from your peers? On the other hand, what weaknesses do you feel still need the most work?

As strengths, I believe I have good hand eye coordination, rebound control and positioning.  I would like to work on my puck playing ability, and always see the need to improve on my overall game.

Who is the player(s) in your age group that you respect the most on a skill and/or leadership level and why?

Rhett Marchant (Teammate)….Our most skilled player on the Twins, very fast.  Oman Harmacy (Competitive team Defense  player)…..smart player with a hard snap shot.  Lucas Hansen (Competitive team Defense  player)….overall player, smart with great hands and a hard shot, always a threat while on the ice

What can you tell the readers about yourself that likely very few people know about you?  Superstitions etc.?  Have you had any relatives play high levels of hockey?

I never wear dress shoes when I go to the rink (I wear runners), I stretch by myself for warm up.  Currently my older brother plays in the CSSHL with the RHA Nationals E15 as a forward (moved from defense to forward his first year of AAA) and is listed with the Steinbach Pistons
