Other sport you’d play if not hockey
I liked lacrosse and soccer growing up. I played lacrosse in high school and soccer until I was 19. I enjoy golf in the offseason. If I have to pick one, maybe golf.
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Edward Norton. I like him in “Rounders.” He’s good in “Fight Club” and a couple different ones.
There’s so many of them. I’m going to say Jessica Alba.
Favorite TV shows
“House,” “Family Guy,” and “Two and Half Men”
“Caddyshack” and “The Shawshank Redemption.” Maybe “Cinderella Man” in there.
A Mercury Lynx. It was a little four-cylinder. I think it was an ’82 and it was white.
Favorite vacation spot
Worst injury sustained in hockey
I had a broken jaw. It was wired shut for six weeks. I had to have everything through a straw. I lost 18 to 19 pounds.

On the emotions of the playoffs
It’s all about staying in the moment and not thinking too far ahead. It is a grind, but if you keep that single focus and pull toward that one goal, everybody keeps momentum going that way. It’s tough mentally to keep the energy going to that one focus, but if you can do that, then things usually work out for you.
