Who has played the biggest role in getting you to centralization?
“My family. They have given me the environment I’ve needed to be successful
since I was young. My parents and three siblings support me in everything I
do and are most definitely my No. 1 cheerleaders. They are my backbone, and
without them none of this would be possible.”
When did you decide you wanted to play for Team Canada?
“As long as I can remember, I always dreamed of playing for Team Canada.
Growing up I was fortunate to play a ton of different sports, and just like
most kids I would imagine myself competing on the international stage. My
imagination saw me representing Canada as a runner, snowboarder, volleyball
player, soccer player, hockey player; it pretty much changed every day. I
had this inner drive to one day be an elite athlete, but I hadn’t decided
which sport I would pursue. It wasn’t until the end of high school that I
decided that hockey would be the sport I would focus on, and hopefully
reach my goal of representing my country. From that day forward I was set
on a mission to be the best hockey player I could possibly be.”
What is the most important thing hockey has given you?
“Hockey has given me a lot, but most importantly it has provided me with
countless life-skills that have helped shape the person I am today. Hockey
has taught me how to fail and come back stronger, how to be a team player,
and a leader. It has also taught me time management, mental toughness, the
value of hard work, and so many more important skills that I will carry
with me through the rest of my life.”
