As a goalie, you must stay positive. And if you do make a mistake, well, those things happen when you play my position.
Sometimes it just feels like the only thing you do is play hockey and eat.
I always want to push myself as far as possible; I always want to be up there and recognised as a good goalie and have people appreciate what you do.
We are all built differently. Some guys are more powerful. Some guys are very tall. I'm not very tall, so I rely on quickness.
When I grew up, I always ate Frosties Kelloggs.
During the Olympics they're really strict about what you're allowed to wear. You get a lot of clothes, but everything is pre-ordered. We had a fitting over the summer. You're not allowed to wear your own clothes. No logos, nothing. You get fined if you wear something you're not supposed to wear.
I love that about New York: You just dress the way you want to dress and feel really comfortable because nobody is judging. You can just be yourself, and it's perfectly normal.
The key for hipsters is that they usually try really hard, but the important thing is they want to come across like they don't try. To make it look effortless. I don't mind. It really fits New York, the hipster look.
For me, what takes up most of the space in my closet are suits. I wear a lot of suits and jackets. But I think every man needs a black suit at home. You can never go wrong in a black suit. But in terms of style, I think it's about being comfortable in what you wear.
I don't shop by brand loyalty at all. I'm just drawn to what I like when I shop. I do like this brand called Tiger of Sweden a lot, though. They make great sportswear and tailoring. And Calvin Klein; big supporter of them as well.
You get to the rink, stretch for 10-15 minutes, go on the ice 20 minutes before practice starts and do goalie drills, practice for an hour, then stay on the ice for about 10-15 minutes to do extra shooting.
I like to play music; play guitar - I love that. Play some golf in the summer. Just relax, enjoy the summer. That's nice.
I love playing music, so I think the whole John Varvatos look is kind of cool. I think he has a great style.
My first idol was a Swedish goalie, Peter Lindmark.
Last time I was starstruck was when I met Roger Federer. He is one of the few athletes that I really look up to - incredibly talented both on and off the track and a great role model for tennis.
