Truly honoured to be selected by @OHLIceDogs. Thank you to everyone that I have crossed paths with along the way and those that have supported me. Especially my family, coaches, and teammates. Can’t wait to get started, in the meantime I hope everyone is staying safe. #godogsgo pic.twitter.com/t7bEoWhvzv

For those players getting ready for the @OHLHockey draft. Don’t let someone’s opinion of you define your potential and who you are. It’s the work after, the perseverance and determination that will set your path #OHLDraft #getreadytowork
