“That would be implying I was (good). Seriously, it’s something I grew up doing and I love improving every day. You have to skate as much as you can and develop skills. Practice is the biggest thing and anytime you can get on the ice you have to take advantage of it. Skating is also big. If you don’t have a great shot or handle the puck well, you can get away with that. But if you become a good skater, it will take you pretty far.”
