‘MY GREATEST GOAL”
“I would have to say my greatest goal would have to be when I was playing in college with NCAA Alaska Fairbanks.
“I scored against Ohio State in the playoffs. We went on to win the Best of 3 series and got to play in the CCHA Finals at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. It was my senior year and it was the first time that our team made it to the Joe in my time playing in Alaska.
“My linemates at the time were Braden Walls and Ryan Hohl.
“The actual goal wasn’t anything fancy or special. I received a pass right around the top of the left face off circle and put it low glove.
“But it really felt great winning this important series on home ice — something that meant a lot to me and I will never, ever forget it.”
