|LAST CLUB TEAM:
||12 September 1990
||Burnaby, BC, CAN
- Tied for the lead on the Lancers with nine playoff assists (2-9--11), helping lead his team to a 2008 Anderson Cup championship.
- Got his start in hockey by attending local junior games and played his first hockey season with the Ridge Meadows Rockets; also played for the Burnaby Winter Club and the North Shore Winter Club.
- Patterns his game after Detroit’s Nicklas Lidstrom – “he is smart and makes players around him better”.
- His pre-game routine includes always putting his left skate on first and stretching on his own – “I do it just to have consistency in any rink I play in."
- His most memorable hockey moment was winning the Quebec Pee Wee International Tournament and his most embarrassing hockey moment was scoring his first junior goal on his own net.
