"I'm following my best mate, Neil Clark. He plays for the CHL's Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs. We grew up playing against and with one another from minor hockey to juniors. Being best mates makes me a fan of his. We chat almost daily about what's going on with the squad and his silly long bus trips. I tell him my stats in the beer league I'm in [in Austin], he'll give me his. He's more of a banger, up-tempo player, so getting the updates on his goals and tilts are fun for me. I'm gonna do my best to get out there and see a couple games before Christmas."
