-What is your best memory from playing in the Olympics?
Gold Medal Game v Canada in Vancouver, Canada.  It was a great atmosphere, very loud and a great game.  I wish we could have won the Gold for our country, but I know we tried our best and am very proud that we won the Silver Medal.

-I read that you said you would be a teacher if you were not playing hockey.  Why?  What would you want to teach?

I would teach History if I was not a hockey player.  I enjoy children, as I have two of my own, and I think it is very important to help young people learn so that they can be successful in their own lives.

 
-Why did you decide to be a hockey player and not a football, baseball, or basketball player?
I chose hockey because I followed my older brother Brandon.  He played hockey when I was younger, and I remember going to his games.  I loved the sport and wanted to be like him.  I guess I owe him for some of my success in life, as it has worked out pretty well.

 

-Who inspired you to be a hockey player?
My older brother Brandon as I explained above.  We are very close and I wanted to be a hockey player like him.

-I see that you are actively involved in charitable activities.  What motivated you to “give back”?

I realize how lucky my family is with not only our financial successes, but also our health and our loving family.  I know that not everyone is this fortunate, and feel that I, as a celebrity, role model and athlete, can do my best to help others.  I wish everyone was as happy and healthy as me and my family, and I will continue to do what I can with efforts like my deal with KaBoom - http://kings.nhl.com/club/page.htm?id=41104.

 

-What activities will you do with your family during the off-season?
Traveling, swimming, going to the beach, ice skating - I just really like to spend as much time as I can with my wife and two little boys.  This is such an important time for them, and I miss so much being on the road during the season.  We will go back to my home in Ithaca, NY for a couple weeks, and then just hang out and enjoy the summer in California.
