Growing up in Finland, ice hockey was the main sport. But I never played that. I went with footy. I never had any other hobbies.
When I do defensive work well it always helps my offensive game.
A lot of Finnish people are laid-back and quiet and that's how I am. I've never seen any reason to change myself.
