Colin is continuously working to improve and challenge himself. He is currently working with Kain Tisi to further develop as a goaltender and with a strength and conditioning coach for fitness and stamina.
He challenged himself against older players while attending Jim Thomson's Prospects Camp daily for seven weeks in summer of 2019, and during the spring and fall camps for the Aurora Tigers Jr A.
Colin's goals are to play as high a level of hockey as possible, and to pursue post-secondary education.
