How the devil are ya?

Right now? Right now I'm a little tired, a little exhausted from the two-hour skate. Looking forward to lunch.

It's a Saturday night and you don't have a game. Whatcha gonna do?

Coming from junior, we usually have curfew so maybe watch a little hockey on TV or maybe play some video games.

What were you like in school?

Definitely a jock. Played all the sports and wasn't the smartest guy in English.

If I'm buying, what's your poison?

How much money are we talking? Probably go out for a few beers.

Pick five words to describe yourself.

Witty. Hard-worker. Easy-going. Intelligent. And energetic.

Who's the last person you punched and why?

Probably Jesse Zetariuk in Moose Jaw. We wanted to watch a little wrestling and he wouldn't change it, wouldn't give us the remote.

So I take it you've probably ordered wrestling on pay-per-view then?

I have, a few times.

What's your most treasured material possession?

Right now it's probably my gold medal from the world juniors.

What's the most ridiculous thing you've ever bought?

That's a tough one. I don't know if buying a Sea-Doo is ridiculous.

Do you actually use it?

Yeah.

What's the first car you owned?

A '94 Sunbird, turquoise.

Do you have a culinary specialty?

Bacon and eggs in the morning.

What's your cellphone ringtone?

I have it on vibrate but the only one I ever had was Here I Go Again by Whitesnake.

Who's the most famous person in your cellphone?

Probably Bryan Trottier.

What's your favourite unhealthy food?

Slurpees.

What's the best concert you've seen?

Poison. Saw it this summer in Toronto. I've only seen three concerts: Def Leppard, The Cult and Poison.

What's the best year of your life so far?

This last year. With the world juniors and going far with the Western Hockey League (with the Moose Jaw Warriors), I'm just having a good summer.

You have a few hours to kill: Book or video game?

Video game. Fight Night: Round 3, X-Box.

What's your greatest fear?

I'm afraid of heights.

What movie made you teary-eyed?

The Lion King ... when I was young.

What's the ugliest thing in your wardrobe?

I'd say this orange Reebok shirt with a guy with an Afro on it. It was a gift.

What TV series do you want on DVD?

Family Guy.

If you weren't a hockey player, what would you be doing?

I'd be a rock star if I could.

What's the funniest thing you've seen during a game?

During a practice, Zetariuk in Moose Jaw, he was kind of messing around with the puck. It was against the boards and he went to chip it, hit himself in the teeth, knocked his teeth out.

Could you be convinced to karaoke? If so, what would you sing?

Probably Talk Dirty to Me by Poison.
