- Selected in the 1st Round (9th Overall) by the Bloomington Thunder during the 2014 USHL Phase 1 (Futures) Draft.
- Will skate with the Grand Rapids High School Thunderhawks.
- He was selected to take part in USA Hockey's Select 16 Player Development Camp in July of 2014.
- Spent his sophomore season playing for Grand Rapids (MN High School), where he was the team's third leading scorer in what was his first season of high school varsity hockey. He produced 39 points (11G, 28A) in 27 games in helping lead the Thunderhawks to the Section 7AA semifinals.
- In July of 2013 he took part in USA Hockey's Select 15 Player Development Camp, where USHR had him ranked among the top 24 forwards at camp after producing four points (1G, 3A) in five games. USHR's analysis of his performance: Has the look of baby deer on ice -- tall, gangly, and somewhat weak. There is a lot to like here, however, because the crafty center has good hands, vision, and solid skating form. Once he fills out and adds some power to his legs he will be a prospect with a lot of eyes on him.
