  • Was a member of Team USA at the 2007 Memorial of Ivan Hlinka Tournament in Slovakia.
  • Patterns his game after Edmonton’s Ethan Moreau – “he’s a responsible center in all three zones and he’s a leader”.
  • Was a member of Farmington Hills minor hockey for three years and played his first-ever season of hockey as a member of the Farmington Hills Thrashers. He went on to play two seasons for Compuware and one season with Honeybaked before entering the OHL.
  • If he could invite any three people to dinner he would choose: U.S. cyclist Lance Armstrong, boxing great Muhammad Ali and former NHL star Steve Yzerman.
  • The best advice he ever received was from his mom -- “Don’t let anything get in the way of your dreams” and he credits his step-father for having had the most influence on his career for starting him in the game.
  • His most embarrassing hockey moment was falling over the boards during the 2007 Memorial Cup and the most embarrassing song on his iPod is “Tell me why” by the Backstreet Boys.
