Daniel Hounjet from Saskatoon, Sask., asks What was the biggest change for you coming to North America from Switzerland?

It’s a whole different world. The NHL is the best league; the speed of the game, the intensity…and you play 82 games instead of 45.

Maddie Griffin from Brandon, Fla., asks Who is your favorite band?

It’s a Swiss-German rock band called Zuri West. They are from my hometown of Bern.

Olivier Morin from St. Lazare, Que., asks What exercises do you do to get such a great slapshot?

I’m working on it every day, taking one-timers after practice. You can always get better.

Victor Lalonde from Kingston, Ont., asks What’s the key to being successful on offense and defense?

You have to take care of the defense first. After that it’s a matter of experience.

Glen Cuthbert from Hamilton, Ont., asks How is hockey developing in Switzerland?

It’s a popular sport, everybody loves it. There’s a lot of young talent and I would love to see more players over here trying to get their shot.
