I was born on March 29th, 1994, in Toronto, Canada. I first learned how to skate when I was two years old on the backyard rink my parents would build every winter. My two brothers and I have loved the game of hockey ever since.
My youth hockey career consisted of many years traveling around the city, while playing in the Greater Toronto Hockey League. When I was 15, I was drafted to play Major Junior for the Plymouth Whalers in the OHL and moved away from home full time. Two years later, I was drafted to the NHL in the first round and at 19, my professional career began in Washington.
Today, I am currently living out my dream and playing for the Washington Capitals. I have been fortunate enough to play over 500 NHL games and win the Stanley Cup in 2018. I continue to strive for excellence every day on the ice, while also supporting my community through local initiatives and my non-profit program 43’s Friends.
