HOW THE DEVIL ARE YA? Good (laughing).

IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT AND YOU'RE NOT PLAYING. WHATCHA GONNA DO?

Oh jeez. Probably just hang out with a few of the guys. It depends on if we play the next day. Just hang out and go to a movie maybe.

WHAT ARE YOU LIKE AT SCHOOL?

I'm pretty good. I try not to be the class clown every day (laughs).

PICK FIVE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOURSELF.

Let's see. I'd say good sense of humour, easy-going, fun, generous and I'm a happy guy.

WHAT'S YOUR MOST TREASURED MATERIAL POSSESSION?

Oh jeez. I'd probably have to say the new truck that my dad bought me. It's not new but it's new for me. I think it's a '90 Toyota. I get it next year, so I'm pretty happy about it.

WHAT'S YOUR POISON?

Well, what I like to drink all the time is Slurpees (laughs).

WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU PUNCHED AND WHY?

That would have to be teammate Isaac Reid last night at supper. We were just goofing around.

WHAT'S YOUR MOST UNPLEASANT CHARACTERISTIC?

I've got a pretty short fuse sometimes.

WHAT'S YOUR CULINARY SPECIALTY?

I'd have to say grilled cheese and noodles. Mr. Noodle.

WHAT TV SERIES DO YOU WANT ON DVD?

The O.C., so I can catch up with everyone else on the team and know what's going on. The guys haven't been too happy the last week because they've been missing it.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE UNHEALTHY FOOD?

I've got a few. I'd probably have to say Wendy's. Big Bacon Classic with fries and a Frosty.

WHAT'S THE BEST CONCERT YOU'VE EVER SEEN?

Gee, I don't think I've ever been to a concert. I was going to go to Shania Twain last year but we had to play in nationals. I've never actually seen one but me and Karl Alzner saw Vince Gill rehearse this year, so that's about it.

I DON'T KNOW IF THERE'S ANY RYAN WHITE MEMORABILIA BUT DO YOU COLLECT YOUR OWN MEMORABILIA?

Just the handouts they give out in the Hitmen Zone every once in a while. That's about it.

DO YOU GET ASKED FOR YOUR AUTOGRAPH A LOT AWAY FROM THE SADDLEDOME?

Every once in while when you're out, kids will know who you are. I was eating breakfast at Smitty's one day and a kid came up to me, so that was about the only time away from the rink.

WHAT WAS THE BEST YEAR OF YOUR LIFE?

Probably last year when we won nationals in midget.

YOU HAVE A FEW HOURS TO KILL. BOOK OR VIDEO GAME?

Video game. NHL 2005. I play it all the time.

WHO DO YOU PLAY AGAINST?

Usually the computer unless Justin Falk wants to play me but I usually pound him (laughs).

WHAT'S YOUR GREATEST FEAR?

Heights. At the 'Dome, there was one game I had to walk across the scoreboard. I was terrified.

WHAT MAKES YOU LAUGH?

Probably a good joke or a good beak at someone (laughs).

WHAT'S YOUR WORST HABIT?

Chewing my nails. My mom always gives it to me for that.

WHAT MOVIE MADE YOU TEARY-EYED?

Probably A Walk to Remember. That's a very sad movie.

EVER ORDER PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING ON PPV?

I did with my buddies one time when I was about 10. Wrestlemania.

HAVE YOU RECEIVED ANY FAN MAIL?

Yup, every once in a while. In Lethbridge, near the end of the season, there was a girl in the stands with a sign that said: "Ryan White's future wife." My billets ran into her and they were talking to her about it. My billets' little daughter, she's real protective, so she didn't like her sign very much.

YOU HAVEN'T MET THAT GIRL, EH?

No, I haven't.

WHAT'S THE FUNNIEST THING YOU'VE SEEN DURING A GAME?

Back in bantam summer hockey, my buddy's dad was the coach and he lost it on the ref and threw his clipboard and it got caught up in the rafters of the rink.

WHAT'S THE UGLIEST THING IN YOUR WARDROBE?

You should ask (teammate) Shaun Landolt this one. He's always beaks at me about my clothing. Probably a lot of my hockey tournament T-shirts. I wear a lot of those.

COULD YOU BE CONVINCED TO KARAOKE AND, IF SO, WHAT'S YOUR SONG?

I'd probably have to do a country song but, if I was to karaoke a pop song, I'd have to do Pop by *N Sync. Me and my buddies always sing that.
