Status: Calgary Flames defenseman.

6-foot-1 Wt: 225 pounds
Jan. 23, 1979  In: Richmond, BC.

First Hockey Memory: "Wow, probably playing mini-squirts with my brother (Chris). Chasing him around."

Hockey Inspirations: "Doug Lidster. (Why him?) I grew up a Canucks fan. He was a steady, stay-at-home defenseman. He wore No. 3, I wore No. 3. I just liked him."

Last Book Read: "The Audacity of Hope, Barack Obama."

Current Car: "Which one? Every day driving - I got a 1500 Sierra."
Greatest Sports Moment: "Getting drafted. Playing on the World Cup team. Winning goal, winning the championship. Those were near the tops for sure."

Most Painful Moment: "Every time I lose in the playoffs."

Favorite Uniforms: "I think the Blackhawks have a good jersey."

Favorite Arena: "Madison Square Garden. Montreal Bell Centre is pretty cool. Chicago when they play the anthem is pretty sweet, in a sold out barn."

Closest Hockey Friends: "I got a few boys. We all head back out to Colorado. Nolan Yonkman, he's playing in the minors. A few other guys too."

Funniest Player Encountered: "Mike Ricci probably. TK's got some good stories too, over there."
Toughest Competitors Encountered: "There's been a lot along the way. I mean, there's so many good players in the league. So many tough players. It's hard to nail it down to a few."
Most Memorable Goal:
"First one. First one for sure. In Anaheim."

Funny Hockey Memory:  "It's tough to pin it down, so many things happen. (Any memory involving Ricci?) Yeah, but nothing I can say though."

Last Vacation: "Fishing in the Queen Charlotte."

Strangest Game: "Lights went out in peewee, in a tournament. And there was a big scrap out on the ice too."
Favorite Sport Outside Hockey: "Surfing."
Embarrassing Hockey Memory: "Caught in peewee looking up in the stands on a faceoff. And then the puck - the guy skated right around me. Probably the most embarrassing."

Personality Qualities Most Admired: "Integrity. Honesty. Those are pretty strong, in my book."
