What do you feel are the skills you’ll bring to the team?
I bring a hardworking and focused attitude wherever I play, as well as a positive and easygoing nature. I always seek to contribute to my team in any way possible.
What is something about yourself fans might find interesting to know (hockey life or family life etc)?
I was an honourable mention in my middle school intramural basketball league back in 2018. I’m also a big fan of surfing, snowboarding, and anything outdoors.
