Favourite NHL team: Pittsburgh Penguins

Favourite NHL player and why: “I don’t have a favourite NHL player, but I’m a big fan of Gary Loewen. He’s just an incredible hockey player.”

How is this season different from years past?: “I’m personally in more of a leadership role, that’s a big one. You notice the younger guys look up to you and you try and follow the examples of previous leaders and do the right thing.”

On the Huskies play this year: “We have a long way to go, as far as reaching our potential. What people are seeing right now isn’t what we’re going to be in the near future. We haven’t hit our stride yet but we will soon.”

On his play this season:  “I’m just trying to put my head down and work each day, not thinking about points or things that don’t matter. I just want to work hard and hopefully the guys follow that."
