What team are you on?

I play on varsity.

What position do you play?

I’m a left-winger.

Why do you like hockey?

I like hockey because it makes you feel so fast and I like moving fast and controlling the puck. 

What is your favorite part of the sport?

Working with teammates and being able to just have fun on the ice, but then see a result. It’s one of the few things where you can have fun and still work hard and just great things come out of it.

What sets it apart from other sports?

The teamwork, the compassion and the motivation.You have to work on and off the ice. Also, the skill hockey requires. Everyone can run, but not everyone can lace up a pair of skates and be able to skate on ice.

How has hockey changed your life? 

I think it’s helped me build some really good skills you need in life, like teamwork or companionship, and then also resiliency skills. And of course there’s the athletic skills. It’s really helped me stay in shape over the years. 

What makes a good hockey player?

I think being a good teammate, working hard and being respectful of the coaches. 

What has been been your favorite recent memory?
Going to Roseaux and winning the championship last year with our bantam team. It was pretty fun because we took a bus and ended up winning it all.

Anything at all that annoys you about hockey?

The other team kind of annoys me but that’s about it. I love hockey so there’s nothing really bad to say about it.

What sets you apart from other players? 

I think my determination and how I really badly want to win. I’m very competitive and will work the hardest to do my best for the team.
