If you could have any super-power, what would it be and why?

I would want to fly. Who wouldn’t want to be able to do that?

What’s your most memorable hockey moment, either at LU or before?

My most memorable moment was scoring the OT winner this year against Augsburg.

Plans for after graduation? Any hockey?

I would like to end up playing professional hockey somewhere next year, but after that I would like to go to physical therapy school.

Favorite professional team? Why? Favorite professional player? Why?

Detroit Red Wings. Steve Yzerman. He’s the best leader ever to play.

Who is the team’s biggest rival? What’s the best part about playing them?

Adrian College. The games are fast and physical, and we genuinely don’t like each other.
