How would you describe yourself as a player? Who has been your biggest NHL influence, and why?
“I don’t like to shy away from any part of the game. I'm a smaller guy, but I'm not afraid to play defense. I'm not afraid to put my body on the line. I think I’m a forward who likes to make plays, have the puck on my stick and find my teammates. Creating offense has been just a big focus on my game. In terms of someone I modeled my game, I used to be a big Tyler Johnson fan. When the Lightning were breaking through I loved watching him because he’s a smaller center, but it felt like he dominated the sheet, he was a great skater and I loved watching him play.”
