CB: I’m trying to focus on goal scoring and being a threat in the offensive end.
Have you spent time with any of your Americans teammates over the offseason?
CB: Yeah, I’ve seen a couple of the guys, and I am planning on having Brownie stay at my house for a bit.
What has been the highlight of your summer so far?
CB: The highlight of my summer has been the family reunion I just had!
Looking back at the Americans 2017-18 season, what was your favorite moment?
CB: My favourite moment from the past season was when we had the double sweep after being the underdogs in both series.
What are you most looking forward to about returning to Tri-City in August?
I’m just excited to go home and be with my billets again, and to get back at trying to bring a championship home to Tri.
Favorite song of the summer?
