What were your thoughts on being selected fifth overall by the Broncos?
It was a great feeling. I woke up extra early on the day of the draft to follow it and when I found out I was selected by the Broncos I was extremely pleased!
What NHL player do you pattern your style with?
I would say Joe Thornton. He is a bigger guy, like myself, and I definitely try to compliment my style to his game.
Looking down the road what strengths do you think you will bring to the Broncos?
I would say my offensive talent. I have good vision.
Who would you say is your hockey role model?
My Dad. He got me into skating from a very early age.
Have you ever been to Swift Current or Saskatchewan before?
I have never been to Swift Current, but I actually went to Saskatoon last summer and that would be my first time in the province.
I actually didn't eat wheat for two years because I thought I had an allergy to it.
