The words I've heard most often used to describe me by coaches, family, and friends are strong, passionate, and dedicated. My passions are family, hockey, science and robotics. I am a proud big brother to an amazing hockey player just two years younger. We are extremely lucky to have a unbelievably supportive family who are "all-in", enabling us to pursue our hockey dreams. While a lot of my time is focused on school, hockey, and training I also enjoy fishing, blacksmith work, archery, hiking, designing and developing my own electronic training aids.
My greatest strength is my physical strength. Along with my skating this has made me a very difficult player to deal with. I am very hard to knock off the puck, and am a menacing net front presence. I have been extremely successful on the fore check, down low, in the corners, and along the boards. I've been told I have a very hard and fast shot with a really quick release. My snapshots often have more velocity then most slap shots. I have had the opportunity to make game changing physical plays, and feel I've found a niche for myself in doing so. Besides making hits, I can take a hit and still make hard, accurate, and timely passes. Finally, I have been praised for being a good teammate and coachable. I work hard everyday, listen, enjoy learning and doing the little things most can't or won't.
I feel like I should always be working to improve all of my skills and attributes. One of the key things I really want to improve is my endurance. While I can keep up and chase down just about anyone, because of my mass I find I tire quickly during extended shifts. Over the last year I have started to work on my endurance by running several miles everyday. I am also putting a focus on agility, quickness, and reaction time. Finally, since my hockey career had started later than most, I have really emphasized opportunities for additional game experience and ice time over the last several years.
In the near term I am focusing on making this season my most successful yet. I want to push myself past regional camps, and break into the USA hockey national development program. Also, in the next one to two years I would like begin looking at playing tier I or II junior hockey. I would really like to make it into the Nation Team Development Program and/or be drafted into a USHL, NAHL, or Canadian Junior A hockey organization. I really hope to get a chance to play juniors and continue growing enough where I am afforded the opportunity to play college hockey. I would really like to play for an NCAA division I university, which would also allow me pursue my passion for science, engineering, and robotics. Finally, it would be my dream to excel to a level where I would have the opportunity to play hockey professionally, specifically be drafted and play in the NHL. When I was younger I used to tell my parents I wanted to play in the NHL... So when I retire, I could fund my own research into a practical Nuclear Fusion reactor.
