“[My style is] very Canadian … my style is I decided to wear hockey jerseys one day … It kind of feels like I’m an Inuit out in the middle of California. Sometimes [it’s] in the middle of August and it’s 90 degrees, and I’m still wearing a jersey. But times like now, when it actually feels cold out, it’s great. [This tradition] started [in] seventh grade. I did it halfway through sixth grade but I don’t count that, so [it’s been] six years … I figure I made a name for myself. At this point, if people are going to know me by anything, they might as well know me for this … It’s important to me because I just want to see how long I can take this. I assume eventually I’m going to get a job and they’ll tell me I need to wear something and that will be the end of it, but until then, I want to see how far I can have this go — into college, adulthood, just because it’s fun … It’s just a love of the game. Like I’m known as the ‘hockey guy’ now and because of that, I’ve shifted into broadcasting for the IceCats and every game that they do … [Wearing jerseys is] just showing something that I love on my sleeve.”
