20 Questions With Jonathan Lessard - An Introduction

In the run up to the new season I have been trying to catch up with as many new players as possible to ask them about life and hockey in a series called "20 Questions" and here is the latest with Jonathan Lessard. If you read the interview yesterday with Coach Steve Martinson it is clear there are high expectations for Jonathan. Martinson said, "Jonathan can score 20 goals for us this year and he will be nasty to play against." Jonathan had 37 goals one year playing in the QMJHL as a junior. Described as fast and physical he fits right into the type of player the Allen Americans are looking for.

In talking to Jonathan he certainly sounds excited to be coming to Allen. He has been working very hard to be in great shape when he arrives for camp. His approach to training camp is nobody is guaranteed a spot on the team. You have to come to camp and earn it. Thanks to Jonathan for taking the time to answer my questions. Based on his style of play and his picture above he is going to be a  very popular guy at the Allen Event Center this year.
