Hockey Inspirations: "Growing up I looked up to Bryan Berard. He was a young, very talented offensive player - I really enjoyed his game. Another guy I looked up to was Ray Bourque. Because he played - not as high-risk - but similar style. And he's a Hall of Famer, so what can you say?"
Nickname: "It's Camper."
First Hockey Memory: "I just remember getting up in the morning and my dad dressing me on the couch. Six-in-the-morning, going to the early skate and having to do my skates at the rink, not me personally - I was four, but him. I have a lot of memories. My dad was a real big influence on my career."

Last Book Read: "Outliers."
Current Car: "Porsche Cayenne."
First Job: "I picked up golf balls at a driving range."
Favorite Meal: "I like a good steak."

Greatest Sports Moment: "Personally, the greatest moment would have to be scoring a goal on my first shot, in my first game in Buffalo. In front of 60 family and friends that made the trip from Toronto."
Most Painful Moment: "Separating my shoulder - Michael Ryder hit me."
Favorite Uniforms: "I like Chicago's - the reds."
Favorite Arena: "Madison Square Garden."
Funny Memory: "One time - when I was playing my first year of pro - the guy took the seats out of my car - my little Honda Civic - and I ended up finding them in the middle of the dressing room when I got there. (Who did it?) Rob Collins."
Strangest Game: "Would be the overtime game when I scored two goals on one shift. It was against Columbus. I scored, the puck went through the net and four seconds later, or seconds later, it came back to my stick and I scored again. Two goals in one shift (smiles)."
Most Memorable Goal: "My first one."
