His 2020-21 season of professional hockey was a tough one for the 26 year old from Nipawin, Saskatchewan as he caught Covid early in the season. He then was traded to a number of teams because he already had recovered from the virus and when teams needed a goalie, he was able to travel and play. He ended up playing for 7 teams over the course of the season and was looking for more stability for the coming season.
