First Hockey Memory: "I actually remember skating on a pond with a friend, chasing around my older brother. I have an older brother (Ryan). He always played hockey growing up so I knew that was kinda something I always wanted to do. And it was following him around on the rink."
 
Hockey Inspirations: "My dad (Mike) was a big inspiration. He played before I was born, but I knew he played and learned a lot from him and still do to this day."

Current Car: "I have an Audi A6 (white)."
 
First Job: "Dishwasher at a golf course."
 
Greatest Sports Moment: "Probably just breaking into the league. Getting my first game and establishing myself in the league."
 
Most Painful Moment: "Last year. I broke my scapula (chuckles). That was the most painful for sure. I went into the boards, kind of head-first and broke my scapula in a few spots."

Strangest Game: "Actually, I think we (St. Louis) beat Detroit 10-1 in Detroit and it was usually the other way around playing that team. So it was a pretty strange game to beat them 10-1."
