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."
Last Book Read: "Was a private equity book. I don't know what the title is."
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."
First Famous Hockey Player You Met Or Encountered: "I honestly don't know who the first one was. Actually, Pat Verbeek is from the same city as my dad so I met him."

Embarrassing Hockey Memory: "I can't think of anything right now - other than getting beat up too bad (chuckles). (By who?) I've had lots. So I can't name one."
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."
Favorite Sport Outside Hockey: "Golf."
Toughest Competitors Encountered: "Probably Jonathan Toews."
