On his style of play and reputation of being a feared player: "I am a hard-hitting and physical player. I find through the years the more people talk about it, the more other players know you are on the ice. It actually helps you. It's definitely a good reputation to have. Players really know you are on the ice and they have their heads up a little more." Hockey Digest
