Tell us about your draft day experience (where you were, who was with you, how were you watching, etc.)
I was sitting on the couch with my whole family. My mom, my dad, my brother, my grandpa, and my cousin. we had it hooked up to the tv.

You have some time to reflect now on the draft... What it means to you to have been drafted to the Oshawa Generals?
It means a lot to me it felt really good, honoured that they picked me, but now the real work starts

Have you spoken with the team? What have they told you?
I have spoken to the general manager, but due to Covid 19 haven’t gotten the chance to meet anyone from the team yet.

What do you like about the Generals?
I’ve heard a lot of good things about the generals coaching staff and overall team and i’m hoping to be apart of it.

What do you think you will bring to the Generals should you play for them?
I feel I could bring scoring, physicality, and play making.

How are you preparing now and over the summer to further your development in hopes of being on the team?
I've been working out and will continue to do so, excited to get back on the ice.

How would you describe your style of play?
Scorer but physical and can pass.

Who is your favourite player? Do you model your game on them?
Auston Matthews, and yes I would say I model my game after him.
