Favorite thing about being a Power Player Making the goalies move when I'm out there on the ice during TV timeouts and being able to watch the game from the Zamboni Tunnel.
Favorite Ducks Moment One of my favorites from last season was watching Jonas Hiller beat an Avalanche player to a puck at the blue line before it was deflected back down to the crease. Hiller wasn't able to get back in time so Pronger jumped into the net and blocked the next shot (1:25 mark of this video).

I just remember turning to the other girls, seeing their mouths agape, and feeling like I just got off a rollercoaster when the referee finally blew the whistle! (Of course, it didn't hurt that we also won that game.)
Describe yourself in three words Stubborn, curious & animated.
Something that would surprise people
I love to go fishing!
What would be your theme song? "Astair" by Matt Costa. Simply because it makes me smile.
Who would play you in a story of your life? Cameron Diaz
What did you want to be when you grew up? A doctor
If you played for the Ducks, what position would you want to play and why? The enforcer. I have TERRIBLE hand/eye coordination so I'd probably just stick to kicking some butt.
If you could be on a reality show, which one would it be? The Amazing Race
Best vacation you ever had Snowboarding in the Pyrenees
If you had an entire free day, how would you spend it? Traveling somewhere.
What is the craziest thing you have ever done? Moving to Bordeaux, France before I knew where Bordeaux was in France.
What is the most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to you? I was running late before a game but decided to quickly stop into Starbucks anyway. I got to the door at the same time as a dad and his two daughters, and he held the door open for me so I said, "Thanks!" and strolled in. I felt something brush the back of my calf but didn't think anything of it. I walked up, ordered and turned to go wait for my drink only to see my pink undies lying in the middle of floor. Evidently, because I had grabbed the jeans I was wearing straight from the dryer, my underwear had gotten tangled up in one of the legs courtesy of that awesome thing called static cling.
The worst part was, I couldn't ignore it because the dad that had held the door open for me had observed the entire thing AND I couldn't just pick it up and flee because I was waiting for my coffee! So I had to walk over, snatch it up and was like "Err...good news! It's clean!" and then stood (face on fire!) waiting to claim my coffee.
Moral of the story: I always check my pant legs before I put them on and there's a Starbucks on Newport Blvd. that I now refuse to go to.
What is your guilty pleasure? Anything with the words fudge and brownie in it.
