  • Named to the Wisconsin Hockey Coaches Association All-State team in 2008.
  • His first hockey team was the Wausau Warjacks after getting his start in hockey at the age of five playing roller hockey in the neighborhood. He used to skate on the local pond and on the ice in his driveway – “I have two brothers so there was always someone to shoot pucks with”.
  • Credits his brother, Nick, for having had the most influence on his career – “he has influenced many of my decisions because of his experience in hockey”. Nick will attend the University of Notre Dame in the fall of 2008.
