Answer: My off-season is a never ending cycle of improving every aspect of my game. One thing that I’m really trying to focus on is building my lower body and trying to get quicker and faster.
(4) What is your favourite thing to do in the off-season?
Answer: This would probably be going out of town with family and friends for weekend trips. This could be camping, on the lake, or just going on a hike. Just to be able to spend that time with those people is what makes it special.

(6) What is your favourite moment from last season?
Answer: There are a lot of favorite moments to choose from. I would have to pick our B.C. road trip. Sometimes being around the guys for that long can get a little tiring but it was a lot different and I think it was great to get that bond and be able to get closer with a lot of guys that I didn’t know so well.
(7) What did you think of the Stanley Cup playoffs?
Answer: It’s amazing what those guys can do. It’s the definition of the best hockey in the world and the way that they play with heart and desperation makes me realize why I love this game so much.
(8) What did you think of the 2018 Mastercard Memorial Cup?
Answer: It’s an awesome event that allows the CHL to bring all three leagues together. It’s obviously a goal of ours to be able to get there and this is what we have been working towards since the day we came into WHL.
