What is your fondest Stingrays memory?
Winning the Kelly Cup in 1996/97.
You hung up at the skates at only age 26. Why so young?
I decided to retire young because other opportunities came along combined
with a torn ACL in my last season.
What attracted you to stay in the Palmetto State after you retired?
Friendships, opportunities, weather and outdoor activities.
Who's the better hockey player, you or your younger brother Scott?
Scott is a great player, I don't think I can judge who's better.
Do you still keep in contact with any of your former Stingrays teammates?
Still in contact with: Brett Marietti, Jason Fitzsimmons, Rob Concannon, Jared Bednar, Jeff Maclean, Kevin Knopp, Cory Cadden, Chris Hynnes, Dave Seitz, Jay Moser, Mike Jickling, and Trevor Johnson.
What do you miss the most about your playing days in South Carolina?
I miss the great friendships with teammates & fans. I also miss the great feeling of winning at the North Chas Coliseum, which we did a lot of.
I would have liked to have one more season to finish on a winning note.
