The NWJHL season is in full swing, and the Fort St. John Huskies are hard at work trying to defend their championship. Each week we'll talk to a different Huskies player, about themselves as a player, where they're from and the current Huskies season.
Position: Right wing
Hometown: Prince George
Wieght: 165 lbs
2018 stats: 4 GP, 0 G, 6 A, 6 P
Age and year with Huskies: 18, first year (NWJHL rookie)
Favourite NHL team: Montreal Canadiens
Favourite NHL player and why: “P.K. Subban. I like how explosive he is, and how offensively minded he is for a defenceman. He’s hardworking and fun to watch."
On playing junior hockey: “It’s a lot faster. Everyone’s big, fast and can shoot way better than what I’m used to.”
On how he’s fit wit in with the team so far: “My linemates Gary (Loewen) and Teagan (McMullen) are playing really well, and I think we’ve been great through two games together. I’m focusing on being in the right spots, and following (coach Todd Alexander’s) system is really helping my game.”
On the Huskies’ potential: “We’re finally clicking. If we play the same way we did two weekends ago we can beat any team in this league.”
