Who is your favorite hockey player and why?

Frederik Andersen. He’s my favorite player because of how calm and collected he is in the net. He makes every save look easy and his movements are fluid. He plays in a big market in Toronto and the way he keeps himself calm is something I want to be able to do.

What was your favorite subject in school?

My favorite subject in high school was probably woodshop. I took it my senior year and I learned a lot from it. I was able to make numerous things like a birdhouse, a dresser, a cabinet, and even a hockey stick from just a plain old board of wood.

What song has the most plays in your library?

I don’t know what the song I listen to the most is but I listen to a lot of Billy Joel. I would have to believe it’s one of his many hits.

What do you want Jets fans to know about you?

I want Jets fans to know I’ll give it my all whenever I step onto the ice. When I’m off the ice, I will answer any questions you have no matter where I am.

What is the best thing about Janesville?

The best thing about Janesville has to be the Jets fans. I love how involved they are with the team.

What advice do you have for youth athletes?

I would tell young athletes to have fun with the game. You guys are young so you don’t have to stress about anything except having fun.
