What was the most memorable moment of your hockey career?
I’d say winning the NCAA championship at Michigan. Although playing for the U-18 Canadian team and winning the world championship was rad too.
What advice would you give to future professional hockey players?
Enjoy the game before you go pro. Professional hockey is fun for sure but don’t forget it’s a small piece of your overall hockey experience.
What are you doing now since retiring from professional hockey?
I have a beautiful wife and 2 kids that are the center of my life. Professionally I’m the chief investment officer for a utility scale solar developer – 7X Energy.
