Toughest Opponent You've Ever Faced: My NTDP teammates

Goalie You Model Your Game After: I try to pick something from a couple goalies. I've always liked Carey Price and the way he stays very calm. Recently I've been watching a lot of Andre Vasilevskiy and Sergei Bobrovsky. Those are probably my top three.

WHY I WEAR NO. 30

I grew up watching Henrik Lundqvist so 30 was always my favorite. I switched to 35 when I went to Avon Old Farms, and kept that number when I came to the NTDP. I had to wear 29 at the U18 Worlds because uniform numbers only went from 1 to 30. Next year I'm going to wear either 29 or 30.
