Who has played the biggest role in getting you to centralization?
“I owe a lot to my parents. They were the biggest supporters of my dream to play in the Olympics, and they sacrificed a lot to give me every opportunity to excel in sport and instilled the values of hard work and discipline in me.”

When did you decide you wanted to play for Team Canada?
“As far back as I can remember the dream had been to play for Team Canada. Watching the Olympic gold medal game in 2002 solidified that in me.”

What is the most important thing hockey has given you?
“The sport has given me so much – friendships, educational opportunities, travel – but I think the most valuable thing I have learned through hockey and a career in elite sport is mental toughness and resiliency. An Olympic career usually comes with a fair share of challenges and setbacks and I’m thankful for how those experiences have shaped me.”
