One time he was 7 years old and we were driving him to a very important game and I noticed he was so quiet. He was sick; he had a high fever. I said ‘We’re turning around, you’re not playing hockey.’
He started getting so mad he said, ‘No, I’m going to play.’ Most kids would be in their bed but he wanted to play, he was so dedicated. ‘I have to be there for my team, I have to go play.’
And he did and they won. So amazing, his dedication and his strong will to win, to give everything he has. He’s been like this since he was very young.
