My journey here was described last week in an article but they focused more on my brother’s antics. I did not have much interest in going pro and I wasn’t even playing in the minors. I played mostly pickup games wherever I happened to be living at the time. Then I just decided, why not? My brother is retired and just won a silver medal for our country. I’d like to bring home a gold medal one day. He also won a Cup with Montreal, and this is something I’d like to do too. Montreal were pretty much the only team to reach out to me and I’m not sure if other GM’s had no interest or if they just knew that I wanted to play in Montreal first. So that happened and it was great getting picked up by the Militia in the third. We have been off to a rough start but I anticipate us to get better as the season goes on. We are still figuring everything out but I have full confidence in the team.
So I guess what led me here was my brother’s small legacy. I want to eclipse it and go down in the books myself. I have never really had any support. I just let a few people know that I was interested in playing a few months ago and to keep an eye out for me. Here I am.

Growing up in Canada I was surrounded by hockey all the time. With so much talent all over Canada it was hard to be noticed, going pro is every Canadian kids dream but not many get to experience the feeling of being drafted. The rush of waking up on draft day is like no other feeling, but with all the excitement opens the door for extreme heartbreak... Unfortunately I was not selected in the draft, but being considered is an experience in itself. When I wasn't selected in the draft I was so bummed, I lost so much motivation to keep going, what was the point, no team even wanted to take a shot on me. but I was taught as a kid to work hard and good things will come. So that's what I did, I got up off my ass and got to work. Every day on ice off ice, doing whatever I needed to do to become the best player I could be, then I got the call. I'm about to sign my first contract and I couldn't be more stoked. I wanted to prove to everyone you don't have to be the best player in the world but good things happen to those who bust their ass every day for what they want, and that's what I did. you have to prove yourself every day, stay motivated and I cant wait to get my name on the cup one day...
