Compares himself to Milan Lucic.

Who has been your biggest influence and help in developing your game thus far?

Derek: Honestly there isn’t one exact person, I would say all of my coachs and my family have played an integral part in my development.
You are a big, strong player, that made you mark on heavy weights in the OHL this season.

Aside from fighting, what do you feel your best attributes are, and what would you like to improve on going forward?

Derek: I would say I am a great leader in the dressing room, and have a lot of respect from my teammates. I work hard on the ice, and usually get the job done that I was sent out to do. I have a heavy shot, and am very physical. One thing I need to work on would be my skating.

Is there an NHLer you mold your game after?

Derek: I would say Milan Lucic from the Boston Bruins.
