Q – At what age did you start playing hockey and who/what pushed you try and ultimately stick with the game?

A-  I started playing when I was 4, no one really pushed me to stick with it, I just wanted to play

Q – Is their one particular play, goal, hit, save, etc…that really stands out over your playing career?

A – Not any hit, play, or goal, but more like big wins stand out for me. Like winning the state championship in high school

Q  -Hockey is one of the more “team” based sports. What is the dynamic like to be a part of that atmosphere? (in the locker room, on the bus, practice, etc…)

A – There’s nothing better than being on a team that is very close with each other, and are all trying to achieve the same goal. It’s like having another family.

Q – As a freshmen, what is the biggest adjustment to playing on the college level?

A – From a playing aspect, playing against men that are 4 years older than me is probably the biggest adjustment. But I chose rider from the hockey aspect because they treat you like a D1 program.

Q – Some hockey players are known to be very superstitious; do you have any superstitions, pre-game during, etc…?
