A move to Arizona gave him his first experience as a young billet, playing his first Bantam year with the Utah West Renegades. The following season he suited up with the Victory Hondas U 15 in Detroit, Michigan.
At the Midget level he was off to Nashville to play with the Junior Predators U 16 for his first year. He moved to Dallas the following year to play with the Stars U 18 squad.
