Josh Morrissey is one of the NHL's best young blueliners. The Winnipeg Jet says his experience of representing Team Alberta at the 2011 Canada Winter Games was a major stepping stone to his career development. We caught up with him to get his Canada Games story.
"The Canada Winter Games was one of the best experiences of my life."
"I think for me one of the most exciting parts of Games was the fact that there's athletes from all different sports."
"It felt in my mind kind of like a mini Olympics."
"When I played for Alberta, I felt pride to be from Calgary and to be from Alberta."
"One of the most unique parts was walking in at the opening ceremonies."
"I never really felt that kind of pride before, as an Albertan, but also as a Canadian."
