The best movie I’ve seen in the last year? “White House Down.”


Three songs I never skip on my iPod are … “Till I Collapse” by Eminem; “Boulevard Of Broken Dreams” by Green Day; “No Option” by Kid Ink.


Three words my friends or teammates might use to describe me? Playmaker; quick; funny.


At my first varsity practice, I felt … a little nervous but excited to be there.


What do you work on in the offseason? Skating, stickhandling, and shooting pucks while trying to get stronger and faster.


What is your favorite meal before a game? Peanut butter and banana sandwich.


What is your most memorable moment as a high school athlete? Being the first Farmington team in over 38 years to win the Missota Conference this year. [It’s also the final year of the conference, which is dissolving.]


If you could change one thing about high school sports, what would it be? More outdoor high school hockey games to play in.


How do you balance school and sports during the year? I manage my time to get my school work done before I go to hockey.


Who is your favorite college or pro sports team and why? The Calgary Flames because they became my favorite team when I was a kid.
