CO Hockey Hub: What's your first memory of playing hockey?

AD: I can remember that I was on Rollerblades out in my backyard and I had my dad's old pads on in front of my dad's own hockey net. He had tied a string to the net's posts and made a triangle to demonstrate how important angling was.

CO Hockey Hub: Who is the NHL player you look up to the most?

AD: Probably Henrik Lundqvist. He's older now, but he's kind of a hybrid goalie like me, and I have looked up to him a lot. He has a steady mindset and doesn't get too rattled by goals.
