Jersey Number: 27
Ht./Wt: 5-11, 162

Why number 27? I always wore the number 17. But Rog [captain Kyle Rogers] wore that number here. So I went with 27. As long as it has a seven in it.
Favorite way to spend time away from the rink: Like most of the guys I like to watch movies and listen to music. A few of the guys bought guitars and we've been playing together in the apartment. It probably sounds terrible for people walking by.

What's your hockey superstition? I'd call them routines. I have to put my equipment on right side to left. I warm up at the same time. Nothing crazy.
Nickname: Bird Watcher. I got it when I first got here. They didn't know my name. So it stuck. You don't get to pick your nickname.
What would you be doing if you weren't playing hockey? I'd be at home working in the family business. My dad owns a construction company and a pizzaria.
Something nobody knows about you: I can juggle anything.
