I am always noted as being “too small” however every team I play on I become a leader, I earn 1st line power play time, 1st line penalty kill, and I am called upon in every situation when my team needs me. My coaches indicate that my work ethic, attitude, hockey IQ, competitiveness, and vision on the ice are what help me compete at the highest level shift after shift. I take great pride in my play in all three zones, with and without the puck.
Admittedly, I am not the biggest, strongest, or fastest player… I am confident that any of my former coaches will express that they appreciate my willingness to work harder than my opponents every shift and I play the game to win, not for statistics. If I were to point out a statistic however, it would be +/- as I feel goals and assists will come with a good team, linemates, and coach. Being my best defensively is where I “hang my hat” so to speak.
