"I live my life with a hardworking mentality. I'm a firm believer that success and anything worth achieving is never given but earned."
"For me, a hero isn't someone who becomes an overnight sensation or someone who attains a level of greatness in their craft but someone who influences those around them, at all times, to be better. For me, that person is my father."
"My first memory of achievement was [when I was] drafted into the OHL [Ontario Hockey League] as a 15-year-old."
